Question Bad starters

After 9 years my starter went on my 1994 3.8 in August 2003.I purchased a NAPA rebuilt starter at that time . Since then the rebuilt starter has failed twice.Funny how they never fail at your home so now after $200.00 spent on towing I,m back running again and what I was wondering if other people have had this trouble and if so is their a better source for starters.The failing in both cases was the little solenoid which Ford apparently does not service.The latest replacement seems to have a reworked solenoid and hopefully this is the cure regards Jim

my remanned starter came with the re-designed solenoid and it's been 2 1/2 years now since I put it in.
