Product Details

Starter by Quality-Built®. Get professional installer quality at a DIY price with a Quality Built starter. These starters are manufactured under strict QS-9000 quality guidelines, the highest quality standard achievable for automotive parts suppliers. Quality Built starters are engineered from the ground up to deliver unparalleled reliability. Available in remanufactured QB Premium and brand new QB Supreme, both products offer maximum dependability.


  • Designed specifically for the high demands of professional installers
  • Select components and advanced manufacturing techniques provide unparalleled performance and reliability
  • Meets or exceeds original equipment (OE) specifications
  • Each unit rigorously tested for durability
  • Lean cell manufacturing techniques result in higher quality, lower cost and reduced waste
  • Available in remanufactured and brand new versions

With Quality Built the name says it all because quality is built into every starter. Quality Built starters are products of the finest components, extensively tested both during and after the manufacturing process, assembled in the most technologically advanced facilities. The end products are the finest new and remanufactured starters available anywhere. Every Quality Built starter is manufactured according to strict QS-9000 quality guidelines, the highest quality standard achievable for an automotive parts supplier and a requirement for supplying parts to manufacturers like Ford, GM and Chrysler.

Professional installers are the most demanding starter customers because a defective or unreliable starter costs them money and time when the vehicle comes back, and damages their hard-earned reputation. Quality Built starters were created with this most demanding of customers in mind, but now this same level of quality is offered to you, the do-it-yourself (DIY) customer.

A Quality Built starter begins with only select components, initially tested to make sure they meet all specifications for functionality. All critical sub-assemblies are tested on specialized equipment prior to final assembly. These components are assembled using a unique lean cell manufacturing approach that combines the efficiency of lean manufacturing with quality levels usually only attainable by hands-on craftsman. Completed units are individually tested on proprietary load-based testers across a full range of operating requirements.

A typical rebuilt starter is taken apart and put back together, often with some of the same parts that caused it to fail in the first place. However, every component that is prone to normal wear in a QB Premium remanufactured starter is replaced with a new component, regardless of the condition of the component at the time of remanufacture. QB Supreme brand new starters combine 100% new components and housings with the expertise gained performing countless durability tests and root cause analyses on the remanufactured line. The result is a brand new starter with unequaled performance and reliability.

Quality-Built® is the largest remanufacturer of import starters and alternators for North America, and the world's third largest remanufacturer overall. The Quality-Built line of starters and alternators are specifically designed to meet the high demands of professional installers. To meet these demands, every Quality-Built starter and alternator are made using select components and the most advanced manufacturing techniques. Quality-Built starters and alternators represent the finest new and remanufactured automotive aftermarket parts available anywhere, providing unparalleled performance and reliability.

Since the installation of the starter, it’s done exactly what it’s supposed to. I have not had one issue.

Starter Replacement for My Old Altima
Flawless performance so far from this device for the 3 weeks I have had it. I chose the new version as I didn't have to be concerned with core return expense and bother. I am very pleased with this product. Delivery was speedy and CARiD tech advise made it an easy purchase. (installation done professionally as it is in a difficult area to service on the engine).

Good Buy
The product was fine, but I have not had it long enough to know if any problems come up. The installation for my car required me to take it to the mechanic, so not applicable really.

Not A Quality Starter
Within a week of having it installed the RX8, still cranks slow, having to hold the key down, turn off and repeat a few times before the car fully start.

It got there fast, and as soon as it got installed, it started right up. You just have to know what you are doing.

It was the right part. Exact fit. No problems. The only complaint would be that it took a little longer to arrive than I wanted it to. But overall, it was a great service. Thanks, CARiD.
