Rated 5 out of 5 by DB72 So far so good
I have had this alternator installed for the last 2.5 weeks on my 07 Tundra and no problems...despite the other reviews that i read. Was delivered quick. Bit of a headache to install on the Tundra, due to the build of the truck, but with time and patience it happened.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GMDuramax Build quality is not very good
Needed a replacement unit for a BMW X5. Dealer unit was $1300. So after researching, I bought this unit because it was a Bosch unit, which is an OEM supplier for BMW; along with Valero. I figured with a lifetime warranty and a Bosch rebuild, the unit should be just fine. Now since this is a water cooled unit, replacing this unit is more labor intensive than an air cooled model. So to my surprise after replacing this unit; at first start the voltage wouldn't go past 10v. Check everything, ends up being the alternator. Take it back out and get a replacement. Stick that in, all is good in the world. 11 months later, battery light begins to flicker. After about a week, the unit gives out again. Again, I test everything and its the alternator. So I pull it out and take it back. But this time I am told they won't exchange it because they need to test it. The only way to test it was for it to be installed. So after some complaining, I get a new unit. Coming up to the 8 month mark, unit is dying again. Battery light is flickering and check the voltage, it is only producing ~11.9v - 12.4v, running. So the unit is not doing its job. This will not be the 3rd unit within 2 years. I am going to get it replaced under warranty again or try and get a refund for this unit. Only reason I bought this unit than a different one offered by other online competitors was because I needed a new alternator ASAP and didn't have time to wait. Also, the local store is only 15 minutes away from me.
So if your alternator is on its way out, go elsewhere for an alternator. You only want to do the job once. Between the constant draining of coolant and replacing the coolant @ $25/gal and down time, it is actually more cost effective to spend the $1300 one time and just be done with it. Or if you have the time, send your OE unit out to the rebuilder and have them do it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by revZ4C Went through 3, very poor quality.
The first one I purchased made an extremely high grinding noise. The alternator didn't spin freely by hand, returned it for another unit. The next unit spun freely by hand but after installing it, still made a lot of noise. Returned it for another unit. Third unit was fine for 10k miles but now makes a ton of noise. The OE unit lasted 100k+ miles, I'll spend the extra cash and purchase that next.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yardboy working ok
It's been four weeks and alternator is working ok, it's charging in the range it should be (14.2 volts). Only thing I wish this alternator would have came with is a replacement diode that's for keeping static off the AM radio stations. So far I've bought two alternators and one starter from Pep Boys and they're all working ok.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TdiMark Good refurb part at a great price
A professionally refurbished alternator at a great price. The wrong one came on the first try, but the staff at my local Pep Boys got right on it, and took extra steps to ensure the right one came at the next available delivery.

I ordered it online to save money since I had time to do the repair myself. It arrived 3 days faster than I thought it would and installing it was a snap. I started the engine and it seemed to work perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by zerokelvin520 Quality Product so far
I've had this alternator in my car for about a month now, and it hasn't had a single issue. My only complaint is that the outer casing was pretty dirty out of the box, I wish they would have done a little more during the remanufacturing process to clean it up, but other than that I'm highly satisfied. The lifetime warranty is a huge selling point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hvtk Product fit exactly
Installed and operated as expected once pully was changed out by Pep Boys Manager excellent service.
Switched out pully from old Alternator to new in store.
This saved me from driving 20 miles to other store just for pully and other alternator.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bill207 GOOD PRODUCT, BUT DEFECTIVE
I bought this alternator to replace my original one. Original one lasted for 214k miles. The new product was a Bosch Re-Man. I put it on and started the car. Alternator made loud whine. I thought to myself, this can't be good. But I decided to let the car idle for a bit. The whining sound began to dissipate. So I thought, ok maybe it just needed to break-in. Drove the car for a couple weeks. Started to hear squeaking noises. I checked all the pulleys. Also checked the alternator pulley, as I spun it, I can hear a slight squeak in it. Took it back to Pep Boys and they were able to replace with a new one. Customer Service was great.

Alternator on my van had bad alternator decoupler pulley. Replacing the entire alternator was a better option. Purchased alternator works flawlessly and was a straightforward replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Workingman Happy, happy, happy!
The dealership wanted $1200 to replace the alternator in my wife's DTS. Every other store or website wanted at least $250 plus core charge, shipping etc. I ordered this alternator with free shipping for $165! It required some effort to replace but I saved myself $1000. No problems with warning lights after installation. Quality remanufactured part that fits perfectly. Thank you Pep Boys, you earned a customer for life!

I found this alternator online, ordered it, and it was waiting for me when I walked in. I was lucky enough to be able to bring in the old alternator, so there wasn't even a core charge. Installation was a snap. All necessary hardware was included. And it has been working like a champ!
