I think my 02 Accord V6 is showing signs of needing a starter. It won't start about 4 times this year and a long wait or light tap on the starter got the car started. I don't think it is a fuel pump or spark plug as the car runs smoothly,if you ignore the water pump going bad noise, on 3-5 hours trips. I am looking to get something from Advance or AutoZone in case I have to return it for whatever reason. Any good manufucatures out there as I need it to last more than 3 years. How much would OEM part be? I know OEM should last much longer but the warranty would be 1 year or so. I am having a friend installing it for me as I don't trust shop to use good parts and they may try to come up with other repairs. Called the dealership and they want $545.56 out the door with core returned. I heard Bosch is good. But I prefer dealing w/ local shop if I have to bring it even though it could be unlikely. Thanks.
