Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

2 star because the plastic on this radiator is VERY CHEAP, no joke. Looks like those plastic toys from dollar tree. Mine has a leak on the bottom so i return it. Fitment is good. Bolts right into place like an oem. If you can wait for a better quality and don't need it asap I'd prefer to order an ALL ALUMINUM radiator online. Lighter and all joints are WELDED.

    Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

    Even after using a $50 on-line coupon, I think the radiator was a little price-y. On the upside, I didn't have to wait for it to be shipped as that it was in my local store. BTW, this P2404 rad. was a direct-fit for a '99 Subaru Forester.

    Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

    I purchased the radiator for a Subaru Forester 01. The install went straight forward. The exact match was right which is had with Subaru parts not coming from the factory. The price was a good value for the part.

      Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

      Perfect fit for a 2002 forester S, with manual and air conditioning. The extra fans bolted right up. It even had the little holder for the overflow tube. A very quick and easy swap, and back on the road fast. If you are going to swap this and drain everything, you might as well do the thermostat and gasket also, it is on the bottom and the lower hose connectes to it. I did not and had to go back a week later.
