Rated 5 out of 5 by PBSS Built like the original this radiator is a bolt in
The Spectre radiator was exactly like the OEM so it fit right back in with no modifications.

Good quality radiator for the money. Used the Spectrum Premium Radiator to replace an OEM unit in my 2000 Solara. Fit was perfect and the quality seemed as good, if not better than the Toyota factory unit it replaced. Even comes with a radiator cap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Clarkster Customer Service Was Great...Item D.O.A.
Radiator arrived leaking and Customer Service tried locating another replacement. Unfortunately another radiator could not be found, so they refunded my money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigAl2 Absolutely perfect!
Fit was perfect. Design pretty much exactly the same as OEM. Accessories like the speed-nuts were the right thread to work with the OEM bolts. No extra parts left over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Winchester This is a true direct fit product
I was first skeptical about the item being a single row radiator costing less than half the cost of an OE unit. After installing it my 5.0 V8 (which was a perfect fit) the engine runs cooler than it ever did with the OE brass unit, This product appears to be even thicker than the original two row. Even in traffic on a hot day, the car never breaks a sweat. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yopauly Looks like the original
Nice fit and finish. The box it came in shows the care exercised to get it to you undamaged.
the cooling fins are extremely thin(for quicker heat dissipation) so take care while installing. A piece of cardboard on each side is advised. Durability was rated at 3 stars because I've only had the radiator for 2 weeks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WoodyCA Installed fine - still working a few weeks later
Product looks a little cheap, but price was also quite low, especially with online coupon that knocked off another $30. Hopefully it will last a while. The install was fine, but slightly confusing since my car (manual transmission) didn't have hookups for the transmission cooler. Felt odd to leave two connections unused, but turned out fine. Also wish I'd been smart enough to replace the lower hose since it will be hard to get to when it eventually fails!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SrCorrecto Perfect fit for my 1998 4runner Limited 4x2
It was an easy job to replace this radiator. I just added a little time cleaning the surroundings prepping the area. The radiator construction was excellent and came very protected with all fins straight as arrows. My only advice is: clean the threads before installing. They came with a heavy dose of glossy black paint that may damage the screws. One of mine did but caught it on time, no harm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodwrench Exact fit, no modifications required
This radiator is well made, and was an exact fit replacement. No modifications were required during the installation. It also included new mounting side rails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Merrill Product meets my expectations
In installed the radiator in a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan. 1 screw hole what off center for the double fan setup on this vehicle, but I just drilled a hole and it was good. Otherwise fit like a glove and works as expected.

As far as I could tell...it seems to be an exact replacement for my 2002 Mazda wrx.
My old one split in the middle of the plastic at the top.
Hope this one doesn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by inst1g8t0r GREAT PRICE, WORKS PERFECTLY
I was a bit afraid to purchase an inexpensive radiator but the 30% brought it down to $67 so I could not refuse, everything lined up perfectly and went smooth. had it in for about a month now and not a problem in my Jeep.

The radiator, thermostat, and hoses are installed and were tested on a cross-country trip. No problems so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Johnwc it fit perfectly
All was well except for the plugs where the radiator hoses attached to the radiator. Since the other plugs were yellows and red, I did not notice the recessed black plugs in the radiator where the radiator hoses attached. When coolant would not flow, I found the plugs and removed them.

Happy Happy Joy Joy! It was just as it was advertised, so it gets four stars, what else is there to say! They would get five stars if they went above and beyond what was advertised and expected.
Imagine if your grocery store was like this and you had to rate every product you purchased! How annoying would that be?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cynt The product was a great fit for the dodge Durango
Everything was excellent and fit with no problem.. I recommend that anyone in need of parts go to the best place which is Pep Boys. I have order many parts from this location for numerous years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gerry4x4 Perfect fit. Outperform the original!
Purchased this after trying a cheap one from other manufacturer. The cheap one didn't fit. Needed modifications to the car and the radiator to make it fit. But that void the warranty.
The Specra Premium Radiator fit like a glove. No modifications needed at all. All hoses connect at the same location as the original! The mounting holes also match the original locations
The coolant passages are larger, allowing better flow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DansExplorer Seems to be good quality
I chose this product because I have used Spectra products in the past with excellent results. My concern is that the radiator's box did not have the name "Spectra" on it. When I questioned the store manager, he said they use a private label that is Pep Boy's but that it was a Spectra. He also said it had a lifetime warranty, but that was not shown anywhere, especially on the receirt. So far I am pleased with the quality and exact fit.
