I want to know what's the best route to go when replacing my alternator. I recently took my car to the dealership and they are charging me $675 to get my alternator replaced since it's bad, is that a good price? My alternative is to buy the alternator then take it to the dealership and have them install it for $200. Does anyone know a legit/reasonable website I can purchase the alternator or would it be best to just pay the $675 to the dealership? If I were to buy the alternator, what would be best to get a new or re-manufactured? Thanks in advance.
