How Much Does an Alternator Cost?

 

Alternators are a critical component in vehicles. The alternator helps power the electrical system of your car while the engine is running. Without a fully functional alternator, everything from the car heater and airbags, to the breaking system and power steering could begin to fail. Early signs of a faulty alternator are gauges flickering and headlights becoming dim.

 

Labor and Part Costs


The exact price of a new alternator really depends on what car you have. You should expect a cost in the region of $200 to $400. It is highly recommended you purchase a new or manufacturer rebuilt alternator.


You also need to take into account the labor costs. Take your car to your local mechanic to find out their rates.


How to Save Money on an Alternator


Did you know you can save a lot of money by purchasing replacement car parts online?

 

Before you go rushing in and buying the first suitable alternator for you car, do some research. Try to find out the exact part number for the alternator you need. Then do a search on our website to find the best deal. After you get your alternator from us at a fraction of the price that the dealer or mechanic would charge you, you can then have them install it and only pay for the labor.  Or you can install yourself and save even more money.
