My son's Mitsubishi Eclipse needed a new radiator. It had cracked all along the top plastic housing where the fill opening is. I bought this one online to get the discount and picked it up in store about 30 minutes later. We had to buy some new bolts from the hardware store because all the ones holding the fans on were very corroded and hard to get off. We ended up snapping a few. If we didn't have to get new bolts to attach the fans, this swap would of taken less than 30 minutes. Even with the discount, the price of the radiator is a bit high. It can be bought for much less online, but I needed it right away.
 For some reason your site wants to log you off and delete all the items from your cart. This can be very annoying.
 would be nice if the picture represented the actual product

Not happy with this brand radiator at all, it started leaking after 4 months. Even though I was able to warranty the part through Pepboys, I had to pay for the labor twice.

Fits perfectly for a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Good purchase for older car which you really don't want to spend a lot of money for a radiator. Not a brass radiator; plastic / aluminum. Change your upper and lower radiator hoses at this time. Warning this radiator is not easy to install; you might consider having this done at Pepboys service center instead especially when they have rewards coupons.
 A reasonable replacement for older /high mileage car
Pros Price
Cons installation
Yes, I recommend this product.

You guys are great. I needed a radiator for my 1968 Camaro. I checked out Pep Boys on line and found a direct fit radiator at a more than reasonable price. The best part was that it took less than 24 hours and I was able to pick it up in store. Perfect fit no modifications needed, I bolted it in hooked up a couple of hoses and was off to the cruise night. Thanks again, you guys are great.
 Exceeded my expectations.
