That's why I recommend that everyone have their alternators rebuilt locally- regardless of vehicle. Not only is it cheaper sometimes, but it's also much more reliable. Big companies use super cheap parts on the rebuild so that they can sell you 4+ alternators before they start to lose money on their lifetime warranty. Small local shops don't do this because a warranty repair takes away immediate income from them.
