Get the lifetime warranty if offered, and if it stops working take it back for another one.

Of course the dealer would say that, he wants to sell you the overpriced factory e only thing I would recommend is that you get a brand name alternator, nothing that comes in a plain white box.For your car a Bosch alternator would be ideal.
