This is the second radiator that I've had to replace in my 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited. The first radiator I had replaced in 2011 by a local shop for around $300. This time I opted to do the repair myself and save some money. After talking to a radiator specialist I decided to replace the thermostat and upper, lower hoses as well. The replacements took around 3-4 hours to complete which wasn't too bad. The radiator was a perfect match and fit. Luckily when I made the purchase the price was $100 less than priced today.

Good radiator but transmission fitting on it does not match ORE. Hose has to be cut off and it only fits on about 1/2 in of protruding fitting. Had to use hose clamp to hook it to radiator. Had it as tight as it would go. It came off on Interstate and now I have to rebuild Tranny. Not good matching ORE. Going to cost me $900 to repair it. So not to happy. I am on Social Security so it is going to put me in a bind. Down to no vehicle.

this was the deal of the century. after shopping around with prices more than double the cost of this radiator and it is the same make as your competitors. IT FIT THE FIRST TIME WITH NO PROBLEMS. it took about 25 minutes to install, and draining the radiator took almost half that time. i would recommend this to any one looking for a good quality product. 2006 jeep thanks you too.

Researched several places online and found this radiator through Pep Boys at approximately one-third to one-half the price of most. I received it in about 3 days packaged nicely and with new fittings and lines attached. My car is not that common and it's usually a bit of a hassle to find replacement parts in stock, or a reasonable price, but I got this one delivered to my front door and ready to go for a price I would usually have to give to a salvage yard for a comparable part.
 absolutely hassle-free
 Have told everyone to give Pep Boys a shot at their next order
Pros Price
Yes, I recommend this product.

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.
 Order took two days to go pickup parts that they had available in the store and store could not find order.
 Product is very good quality.

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.
 As in a prior experience, it took two trips to the store each time to complete the orders.
 The products are of reputable quality, a little more attention to delivery details would be appreciated.
Pros Price, Dependability
Yes, I recommend this product.

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 !!
 Chipped plastic like it got bumped or scraped on something on one the hose connections. But all good so far.
