recently my alternator gave out on me . the mechanic that replaced it told me that it was a rebuilt alternator. he installed it and gave me a price of 245.00. he said it would carry a warranty of 1 year.at that point i told him i would have to give him half now ,and half next week.when i went to pick up the car he changed the warranty to six months . can he do that? and do you think he may have changed alternators? the car is running as of now.
Unless you have something in writing, he can give you what ever kind of warranty he wants. As far as whether he changed alternators, you may never know. Most likely he didn't if the car is running okay. It sounds like you may want to find some place more reputable in the future.
