 A-> PS: count me firmly in the school which suggests NOT buying a used

 A-> correctly and lasted about a year - now I gotta replace it anyway.  
 A-> Sheesh.  I'll gulp and get a new one.

     You had to learn the hard way. I just bite the bullet and
     buy new on items like this. My rational is: If it lasted
     140,000 miles and ten years (the bomb on my 5KS) or
     75,000 miles and 5 years (on the V8), then I'll
     get at least that out of a new grenade.  I did try a 
     recharged (rebuilt) accumulator when the 5KS bomb went,
     it lasted 5 months and the brake light was back on. I 
     ended up having to replace it, this time with a new one,
     that was two years ago, sans problems since.
