Spectra Premium Radiator was good and easy to put in. One thing the over flow valve was to big compared to the tank and had to use tie wraps. Arrived in two days and I picked it up down the street.

I live in Burkburnett, Tx. I shopped locally only to find exorbitant prices. A family member suggested Pep Boys because she gets a AAA discount. Well I didnt need it! Your Price was half the local competitors plus a sale discount! Thank you PepBoys. You saved my growing family almost $100!
 I liked being able to select my vehicle first to find parts.

Bought this radiator and right away it leaked from the petcock (drain valve).
Was not happy that a brand new radiator hadn't been leak checked.
I exchanged it at Pep Boys with no hassle or problems, but I shouldn't have had to.
