Rated 4 out of 5 by Joe123 Spectra Radiator for 2003 Honda Civic
It works as advertised. Would've been an easy replacement except for poor design by Honda which overcrowded everything in the engine bay. Backstory: OEM Denso radiator got old (10 yrs) and cheap plastic split from aluminum core. Notice your Honda overheating and can't find the leak? Look along the upper edge of your radiator w/ a flashlight. It's probably cracked. Daily driver or don't care: this radiator will work just fine; otherwise, get an all-aluminum model. STANT replacement cap used. VERY tight fit. Have staff member verify cap and rad fit before buying both. Do NOT re-use old cap--the pressure release valve could be stuck closed and you'll blow this rad too. Replace rad hose clamps w/ screw type clamps (they don't loosen over time). Run car on high heat, full fan once you're back up and running to get the air out of the lines. Top off overflow reservoir as necessary over the following week. Good luck.

AWEFUL radiator. When it works, it cools slightly less than the factory part, and they constantly leak! I'm on my 3rd warrantied replacement in a year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gusman SPECTRA RADIATOR WAS A PERFECT FIT
This radiator was an exact replacement for the factory Toyota radiator. Installation was quick and easy and everything fit just like the original. I have 2,000 miles on it already and no problems, car runs at normal temp with no leaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by loud The product was as expected, but the service was excellent
The part was ordered on line for a local store pick up.
When I arrived, the part was waiting for me, and the staff was knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. They helped me with this project, and a few others, this day.
In a time when servicing the customer is secondary,
the service I received was paramount. Kudos to the staff on Lynnhaven Parkway, Va. Beach.

This was for a 2000 ranger 4.0 OHV.
This radiator fit perfect, went right in.No problems at all. I put one from the same brand in a 1998 explorer about a year ago and it has held up so far. Time will tell if they both hold up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DesertDog Good Product Overall
The radiator fit well except for the lower left rubber bushing that it sits on had to be trimmed from stock for a bolt to line up. Not a big deal and overall its a good quality radiator and cools well. All stock connections and mountings are in the correct place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deeveeeight It works as it should
I shopped around a bit and found the best price on this item at Pep Boys, plus they had it in stock. My radiator had split the top tank and I needed one fast. My mechanic was backed up for a week so I did the job myself on my 1999 Ford van. It was a very easy job to do. Ford designed this part with the idea that it would need to be replaced at some time and they did a good job of it. My biggest complaint is that there appears to be NO WARRANTY offered on this product. I could not find any warranty information with the packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by boricua Exactly what my car needed.
The radiator was a perfect fit. Exactly like the original that came with the car. All I had to do was remove the old radiator and put in the new one. No problems. I was impress with the quality of the radiator. Like I said, perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trainman1986 Excellent
This part was, as advertised, a direct fit and an easy replacement for the radiator in my GM 2001 Chevy Lumina. I note two things: 1) a prior reviewer had said it came with the radiator cap and I note that it does not (nor did I expect it to). 2) also helpful for other DIYers is to know that you will either need to buy new "quick connect" fittings for the transmission cooler part of the radiator or re-use the old ones (you can't really see these in photo to know if you get them or not and you do not get them). My old ones were rusted in place and I feared damaging the tranny lines if old fittings torqued too much when removing them. New fittings were only $8.00/each from the Chevy dealer (bring Vin# to insure exact match) and It was much cheaper in time and labor to get new ones and simply screw them into the new radiator and then disconnect tranny lines from old "quick connect" fittings and quickly pop them into new fittings. Dealing with Pep Boys's on- line order system was also a breeze. Overall, I rate this purchase as well as the purchase process an A+.--Plus radiator comes with a 3yr warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CamryOwner Easy to install. Comes complete with radiator (pressure) cap.
Replacing a 1997 Toyota Camry radiator with this Spectra Premium radiator was easy. The OE design makes the replacement a perfect fit. And it comes with a pressure (radiator) cap.
