Problems with the alternator

so my alternator is about to fail, and the dealership wants $500 just for the part.. plus the labor to install it. What else is out there and how reliable is an aftermarket alternator??

Go to an auto parts store, they are around 150-200, then when you bring the old one back, they give you some of your money back. Also its pretty easy to change...unbolt the old one and bolt the new one back in...

Also if you do have or plan to get some subs or anything that will draw more power nows the time to get a higher amp one.
