Reman'd alternator is a minimum of $90 where I am and you hear horror stories about unreliable reman units. The remanufacturers use no-name chinese parts. I would rather go to a reputable shop down the road and have them remanufacture my own unit with brand name parts $100-150. Instead I installed a $44 OEM part and I'm back in business. But if you can show me where I can get a reman alternator fixed with brand name parts for $70, I'm in. YMMV.
