2014 Alternator bad at 33k miles?

I have a 2014 GT Premium with only 33k miles and as of 1 week ago, my battery light started popping on and off randomly. I went and had it tested today at O'Reileys and they said my alternator was bad, I googled around and saw that a lot of people had this issue with pre 2010, but not a lot about after that. Is there any reason it might have died so early that I may be able to avoid? Or was it just bad luck. Also does anyone have a good video or guide of how to replace the alternator for my car, thanks.

Car parts like many other items can go bad from day one of service. May have been a quality control issue during assembly, or a defective part in the alternator. Not sure if we can do anything to prevent this type of failure. Not bad luck, just a part failure.

Try American Muscle website for install instructions.
