Rated 3 out of 5 by JetDoc 2nd time around ok so far.
1st alternator must have had a Lifetime Warranty or 5 Miles whichever comes first. Obviously the 5 miles came first and left me waiting for a tow truck at 4am on my way to work. After arriving to work 2 hours late, and $120. lighter (tow) when I called Pep Boys later that morning they didn't have another one in stock. Had to wait till Monday (3 days later) for another unit. I was not happy.
Second one seems to be ok but I'm a little leery due to 1st one seeming ok in beginning also before failure.

Manufacture (MB) wanted $1285 for a new alternator, found this OEM rebuilt from Pet Boy for $385 plus there was a 25% discount code online I was able to apply and a $100 core return fee. Overall paid less than $200 for the alternator saving over $1000.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveB Excellent alternator
I recently replaced my battery with one from Pep Boys that was manufactured by Bosch. A week later, I read an article that said that batteries that are going bad put extra wear and tear on alternators. I had Pep Boys check my alternator and it was only producing between 13.2 and 13.4 volts. It should be producing 14.4 or more volts. I replaced the alternator with a prostart remanufactured alternator and by charging system has plenty of power now. It's been running fine for over a month now.

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.

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.
