This vendor has made a manufacturing error. Mounting/ locator post are 1/2 inch too wide. Post should be 27 3/4" center to center (They may have used a core that is 1/2 inch too wide). Advance needs to notify vendor, check all existing stock, clear defective stock found, and restock with correct part before any more are offered to customers.

          Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

          The product in-box is NOT the correct part for my '97 Chrysler Cirrus LXI 2.5L V6. The part in the box has 1/2" threaded connectors for the transmission coolant. The pictured product, and the one I pulled out of my car, has connectors for a 3/8" hose and hose clamp: that is not what is in the box.

                    This Radiator is NOT an exact OEM fit for my 1999 Dodge Stratus with 2.4l engine. It is too wide at the bottom, making installation difficult. I would recommend chosing another brand radiator.

                      What a piece of junk. It's 1/2 inch too wide for the bottom. The top rubber holes on the car are adjustable, but not the bottom. I left 1 of the rubber washers on the peg and fit a piece of rubber hosing for the other side. I was going to cut the rubber washer, but there made of steel inside. I wouldn' t recommend this to anyone, unless they can't get one somewhere else. A real let down. Next time it's AutoZone.

                          Despite the fact that this radiator is listed as being the correct fit for my 1997 Sebring, it is about 1/2 inch too wide. Got a second one and it too was wrong. Don't was your time and money on this made in China misfit part.
