Ive had mine for sometime and it works fine. Funny how people will dog china made stuff. I have a Mezeire water pump on my car. It failed and its american made. I sent it back to the company and they fixed it and sent it back. No big deal just a bit of a nuisance.

That's good to hear. I just want my car up and running and driving again.

the 2010 alts were upgraded and fixed to not have the issues of the 05-09 ones and since the 2010 is still the 4.6, it bolts and wires right up. good luck

Not ******* Chinese made products. Some are very good but quality control can be patchy, especially on electrical components. Hopefully you're lucky enough to have a good alternator that'll last the life of the car. That said, the 2010 OEM alternator seems to be the best replacement for a failed 05-09 OEM or aftermarket unit.

I get that chinese made goods can lead to bad experiences but we consume several of their made products every year. Id imagine if you look at the percentage for failures its likely low. Its why I referenced the Meziere Water pump. Known to be American made and rarely fails The guys at brenspeed were pretty surprised. Im not one to choose specifically american made products. Price and reliability are my major concerns.

Chinese made wheel bearings don't last more than 20,000 miles. I will be on my
second replacements on another vehicle....

Well that sucks. I knew I was in trouble when I was branded "made in China" at birth

I think it has to due with mass production as well, not saying that their quality control sucks but when you're getting paid $0.10 to make an alternator (major assumption here), they're not gonna be OCD about everything or another.

I really hope so man. I'm crossing my fingers with my new unit but judging by the reviews on AM, they're pretty legit.

So far so good. Installed the new alt and power wire upgrade. Reads 14.3 vs 16.0 last week with stock alt and bad diode.
