Hi
My car couldn t start with no crank.
My mechanic diagnosed a faulty starter and is quoting me 282$ CAD for the starter
( new reman with 3 years warranty) plus 140$ CAD worth of labour .

i have an accord 2007 175 000 km
Does this quote seem reasonable ?

Labor rates differ in different areas, if possible have your starter rebuilt then pay for the installation cost. My mechanic installed 3 new NAPA starters, all bench tested but when put under load on the car they wouldn't crank. No problem when I purchased a Honda starter.

Oh its a reasonable quote. The intake manifold has to be moved out of the way or taken off completely in order to reach the starter bolts, its a pain in the butt. I agree with
KW2004Accord this is a job you want to do (or pay) for once, so pay for a quality starter up front.

Look at the price of starters on Rock Auto with shipping to your address. If cheaper, buy it yourself and have your mechanic install it.

that is not possible for due to exceptional cirrcumstances.
honda dealer quoted me 220$ for the starter and 240 for labour + tx but only offers 1 year warranty.

My mecanic told me reman is a good starter thats why i went for the new one instead of the remanufactured one.he s also putting new gaskets.
i dt mind paying a good price if the quality is there. Any ideas about reman starters?

That can't be OEM, though??...
All things being equal, if you decided on the aftermarket(which I would not do, I agree w/@KW2004Accord) I'd go with the cheaper option.

My parts store reman has been going strong since 2016. Are you going to keep the car for more than 3 years anyway?
not really i plan to get a new car in 3/4 years

OEM starter is mitsuba and it costs 450$
honda dealer is probabely selling a remanufactured one for 220$ especially since they only got 1 year warranty on it.
