AC Delco disappointment...

Post by 1999 Tahoe 4x4 »

I'm getting more and more disappointed with AC Delco these days.

Shopping for a rear barn door lock actuator, I just bought an AC Delco unit, that turned out come with a Made in China label attached and really more looked like a repackaged cheaply made aftermarket unit.

It looks like in futute I might as well forget paying a heavy premium for OEM and just go with the cheapest aftermarket part.

Look into Delphi for parts. AC Delco seems like a spin off anymore.

Agreed. But Delphi does not exist any more. I used to try to service the vehicle with OEM parts, but that just won't make sense any more since expensive OEM seems to be the same as cheap aftermarket.

For electrical components, I have no complaints so far with AC Delco.

AC Delco is very popular back in the days. I hope they are not hit with fakes and knock offs.

That looked bad from an established company, but if anything else, as long as it works pretty well, then the looks don't really mean much as it performed good; if it's the other way around, then just an aftermarket part company would do you good. By the way, this company produces aftermarket actuators in their categories, linear actuators to be exact, you might want to check them out if you decide to lean on more on aftermarket parts after the said experience.
