Rated 5 out of 5 by gdog07 Very good quality part
Radiator pop was having a lot heating issues before it broke. Replaced with this Spectra Radiato and car is running very good no more heating issues. Easy to install and parts included even the radiator cap. Excellent deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DIYer1575 good replacement radiator
This radiator would have an excellent rating if it were an EXACT replacement fit. Unfortunately, the slightly different than OEM dimensions renders the bottom support bracket useless for the fan assembly, although the top bolts seem to be adequate to secure the fans. This slightly different fit should be prominently disclosed as part of the product description details. The unit I received appeared to be new, but was obviously an 'open' box return with greasy evidence of prior install attempt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Calexico No leaks, cheaper than FORD OEM.
I installed this on my 2010 Ranger XL 4 cyl manual transmission after the original started to leak at the seams. This radiator has extra connectors that the original one did not have. Those are for automatic transmissions. It is a minor eye sore as it does not look 100 percent "original" as the one that came from FORD off of the assembly line for a manual transmission. One of the coolant outlets where a hose slides onto it had a chipped edge.I had to somewhat cut the sharp piece of plastic so it would not circulate around cooling system. I was thinking about exchanging it for another one, but I did not feel it would cause problems so I just left it. No leaks, all is good after 1,500 miles. Before install make sure drain valve is shut tight. In the future if you gotta drain coolant dont do it from valve. I dont feel as confident as an OEM. For some reason I would not trust that drain valve being of good quality as a motorcraft one. It would suck to break that valve and you have to tear apart stuff for a new radiator. Just drain it from unhooking the lower hose and you should be good. Even though box says its made in china, i have no leaks and all is good. cheaper than the stealership !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2001SaturnSW2 This radiator did what I expected
Radiator was fine. Only issue was that where it hooks to condenser, the slot width (dictated by plastic) were too small. Tried to adjust, but the plastic snapped. If metal in this area, could adjust to correct width.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheH0gger It fits and works good.
All good except extra fitting/nipple on driver side tank that my car didnt have need for. Had to buy a cap to plug nipple. Didnt come with radiator in box and Pep Boys didnt have the cap. Pep boys still has best selection of parts IMO.

Rated 3 out of 5 by utah installation hardware is suspect
Radiator quality met expectations. However, the installation hardware is suspect.
1) u clips too small
2) rubber insulators too thick, radiator would not seat, had to re-use the OEM insulators
3) top clips provided not compatible
I was forced to purchase/re-use compatible hardware, lost time determining why radiator would not seat properly.
$20 off coupon made it a better value for me, shipping was prompt

Rated 5 out of 5 by Harold53 Great price and easy installation.
Great price compared to other online resellers and picked up at the store an hour later. Did the installation myself on my 1996 GMC suburban and saved over $600.00 versus dealers estimate pricing for part and installation charges. New radiator has been in for about a month and no issues yet. Need to use some of the adapters provided for piping connections to radiator but that was simple.
Definitely would recommend product to other DIYers.
I can't comment on durability as I've only had it a month.

Rated 4 out of 5 by risky COOLER THAN ORIGINAL
PROS: picked up part at store and had it ready for me quick check out, kept vehicle cooler than original.
Cons: the fittings that came with the unit didn't match original for vehiclle specs had to go somewhere else to find the right transmission cooler fittings

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yialee Great Price, Not so great fit!
This radiator is advertised to fit Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredos, and it does. What this radiator's manufacturer neglects to tell Jeep owners is that it does NOT come with the metal transmission cooler connectors that is necessary to hook up the radiator to Grand Cherokees. Luckily, my mechanic was skilled enough to install this radiator with a smaller radiator specifically hooked up to the transmission. Buyer beware; this radiator is a sealed unit made only for cars with transmissions separate from the radiator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ivarr The Radiator is working flawlessly.
The radiator is great. Installing it is a pain because the molded plastic holders for the nuts that are needed do not hold the nuts in place while assembling the radiator and its accompanying fixtures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Texan only one issue
Perfect fit except for the diameter of the overflow tube nipple. It is a little smaller than the original, but it was not a problem to increase the diameter by wrapping some tape around the nipple and then shoving the hose over the nipple. Done..
