as mentioned more than a few times, Reman means different things to different sellers/vendors.

Cheapest price gets the contract = more defects per units sold
OE vendor remans (Dealer service network) usually has the lowest rates of defect returns. Note: it not zero.

In the automotive repair world, most shops choose new VS reman when available under the rule of "Why take the chance?"

DIY: Its your car, wallet, and time. You get to choose the path.
