Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded expectations Although is made in Malasya, so far so good. Works better than OEM. Brand new, warranted for life. November 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5��by Best starter for the money It's working perfectly. November 15, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy install Just finished installing on my step-son's toyota, all I needed was a 14 mm, 12mm sockets, short extension, rachet, and small cheater bar. Didn't have to remove anything else, just loosen the bolts and pull the old starter out and disconnect the wiring and reinstall, hardest part ws getting it out of the tight engine compartment. We'll have to give it some time to see how it holds up. November 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good deal for the $$$ It was a bear to install, but the starter it self seems to be working fine! Sounds good and "solid" when the key is turned. Appears to be made very well. So far so good,,,,, I hope it lasts a long long time as I do not want to have to go through removing the radiator and fans ever again!!!!!! The Pep Boys price was the LOWEST I could find!! The DURABILITY rating below--- it really is too early to tell as its only been installed for a few weeks. October 19, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality replacement My Jeep starter went out and I didn't want to buy junk, but I didn't want to spend alot either. Got this brand new for under $60 on sale! What a deal! The Jeep starts nicely, came with new hardware. Great value! October 15, 2016

Rated 1 out of 5 by Questionable quality On August 4th 2015 I purchased a new starter alternator after the OEM failed. Installation, fit was very good. On August 28, 2016 the starter failed. The starter motor would spin but the engine would not crank. Removed the alternator, the front retaining ring and the front gear had come off. Pep Boys promptly exchanged the faulty starter. New replacement starter works well (how long?). My concern is the loose gear/retaining clip inside the transmission/engine housing. So far no abnormal noises. Attached picture shows starter with missing gear and its replacement August 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Price and quality for New Starter The price for this new starter was cheaper than the higher end rebuilt factory starter by roughly 12%. The truck I needed for is a farm truck that doesn't get used every day so I figured that it likely won't be a tremendous burden if it turns out this "new" starter was less than stellar; the price was. The starter works great as expected... Highly recomendd August 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by ProStart Platinum New Starter Awesome starter easy and perfect replacement, rotates so much faster than my old starter resulting in a faster start... Great!! as far as durability only time will tell, Quality of starter looks very good. October 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works fine. Will it last? I would like to have had more specific instructions. They were generic. October 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Parts included to fit new connection on starter Ford found out that starter problems due to corosion were in the lead 6" for the solenoid. They redesigned the connector on started and included 6" wire, crimper connector part and shrink wrap. June 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit and went in easy. This starter worked great and went in easy. It was no problem. June 21, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by NEW????, Not by the BOX or Clerk! I bought this starter because your web site states that it is NEW!! I ordered it on-line and went to a store to pick it up. I saw it was in a re-manufactured box and asked if it was NEW. I was told, "All our starters are re-manufactured, we don't sell new ones". I wasn't really happy about it, but needed it. The starter appears to work okay so far. June 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by new starter Why buy remanufactured, if you can new one at the same price. June 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT price,Looks good, Pep Boys has all the things I need for my 1994 Mustang GT . Starters / Alternators and whatever I need. They are Military friendly and give discounts. Excellent Speed Shop has lots of stuff. The Pro-Starter works great and life time warrenty June 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I absolutely love this new Gold Pro Starter After installing my new starter, I was really amazed of the sound whenever I'm starting my vehicle. Now my Denali sounds like a new vehicle upon startup. A very big difference from my old starter, even when I had originally installed it. The old one was remanufactured. Let's just say, from now on I'm sticking with brand new when it comes to a starter, especially the Gold Pro Series from Pepboys. May 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The starter was easy to install and great price I purchase starter and it was easy to install. It was a great price, and it was in stock. Great customer service from parts department May 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value for the money. Perfect fit and performance. Great performance. April 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Seems to be good quality This is going on a project that I am building. I bought this starter on sale at 30% off so I thought to buy a new starter not a reman. It will look nice on a fresh built 302 on new paint. Hope it works as good as it looks. These starters are easy to replace on a 1990 mustang. March 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by New starter not quite the same This is my 2nd Prostart New starter. Good thing it has a life time warranty. I got 4 or 5 years out of the 1st one I hope longer this time. My original factory unit lasted 10 years. I buy new with lifetime warranties so I don't have to replace it again for quite some time. 4 years is not long enough for me. lus, the heat shield from the original starter fit the first one but not this one. Had to bend it to fit. January 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome Replacement Great fit for replacement of original part. November 22, 2014
