Biggest issue is they are farming out all their cores to cheap overseas rebuilders and getting inferior internal parts installed on the cores.There are few parts I will buy from a "parts store", I will gladly pay more from the original equipment part from the dealer first instead of paying less and going through the hassle you did just to get an alternator. Yes I am biased from working at dealerships almost my whole life but I see what does and doesn't work when we install parts on customers vehicles in the shop. We try and quote both new and aftermarket just to give the customer an option but it never fails they buy the "cheaper" part and they are back in 6-10 months later with that component having failed.

As close to "Normal" as I can get...
