    Questionable Part Quality and Functionality

    1 of 2 people found this helpful

    Wow, Duralast quality has definitely gone down these past few years. I was excited to get this alternator and be protected by its lifetime warranty but now I'm starting to question if it's even worth it anymore. The alternator looked clean and durable in the box but as soon as I took the old faulty factory alternator out and installed this new Duralast one, I was very alarmed and dissatisfied. The first thing that I noticed was the immediate loud noise and vibration although I just installed a new alternator serpentine belt. It was vibrating so hard and the noise was so alarming that I thought that my car was going to die soon. Then thought I'd take a quick test drive to see if the alternator would hold up. After a few minutes of driving, I noticed that the alternator got EXTREMELY HOT!!! It got considerably more hot than the factory alternator. In fact, it got so hot that I was worried that the alternator was going to melt the cables near it.

    So far it's been over a week with this alternator installed and I don't have much confidence in it. It works but I am not confident and keep some spare tools in my car in case I have to exchange it on the fly. The only positive from this situation is knowing that I'm covered under a lifetime warranty, or at least I hope so. There's always a possibility that my warranty will get denied for some bogus reason, which has happened before. If anyone knows of a different automotive store chain that has lifetime warranty parts at good quality, please let me know so I can stop going to Autozone. After spending $125+ on the part that has a lifetime warranty, I'm sure not happy with this purchase. I shouldn't have to drive around with tools in my car in case it fails on me.

    Pros: Lifetime Warranty but that's it!

    Cons: Gets VERY HOT!!!, makes unusual sounds, has a noticed vibration, and I don't have much confidence in it.
