Hope the starter is long lasting and don't mean to rain on your parade but like all the other online, parts house, production line starters they don't have the best rep. I was going to order all the components from them to overhaul my starter and found their parts were the "off shore" stuff. Most any experienced mechanic will tell you for an alternator or starter overhaul you get the best rebuild with the best components by taking it to a local auto electric shop.
Thank you for your input
Right now. I hope this starter lasts more than the warranty period of one year. For under $100, that would be acceptable to have it fail in 1-1/2" to 3 years which is what the overseas starters designed failure rate, which is average from some data I read somewhere on a heavily used starter made in Asia. Since its not a OEM Arrowhead which is what came stock and lasted a VERY long time but for OEM, costs $358, I agree, you get what you pay for usually. The good thing is TODAY its NOT raining! I got it FAST, needed it NOW and is what I could handle financially.
So, for the price and availability the starter, the company DB ELECTRICAL and the shipper UPS are a WIN for me and as to what I was able to afford TODAY, I am honestly just GRATEFUL just to be getting my van back on the road.
LMJD, as for as their reputation, do you have ANY specific details I can go read somewhere, when you say "They don't have the best rep"?
I would REALLY appreciate a more lengthly explanation, for myself to know more info and so others here that may read this thread may get the best information and make the best decision for themselves. Or, do you just say this from YOUR "opinion"?
Or, is that statement, from YOUR personal experience or use? If its just what you heard, thru the grapevine, then, I would really like to read facts that I can prove, so, if I got a "piece o' crud" from a company that will treat me like "crud" then I'd like to read about it and prove it to myself before the warranty period is up.
If not, I don't want a bad rep. given to their product, without documented proof from actual use and failure timeframe. I think thats only fair, don't you?
