Expert Subaru Alternator Replacement & Repair Information in Seattle, WA

Most alternators will eventually wear out before the rest of the vehicle does, and that's why alternator replacement and repair services are among the more common projects we see in our Subaru service center. The first step for a vehicle that may have alternator problems is to confirm where the problem is. It could just be the battery. If the alternator is to blame for the issue, it's often quicker and more affordable to have the entire part replaced with a new or remanufactured alternator. However, an alternator that has gone bad can be rebuilt.

What's the Difference Between a Remanufactured & New Alternator?

Chances are that your bad alternator can be rebuilt, but that would take valuable time for the mechanic. That's why it's typically more affordable and efficient to replace your bad alternator with either a remanufactured or a new alternator. The difference between the two really comes down to the price. You see, while it may take a mechanic time to rebuild an alternator, the folks in the shop designed to rebuild alternators are far faster. So long as you stick with a factory-approved remanufactured alternator, it should prove just as good as a new one. However, there are times when a new alternator is the better option. Speak with a service advisor about which option is best.

How Long Does an Alternator Last in Subaru Vehicles?

You can typically expect a long life from an alternator in your vehicle. If not, something else in the electrical system may be to blame. In our experience, the typical Subaru alternator will last more than 100,000 miles or about 7 years.
