According to fedex, I will have it on Saturday. I'll take pictures and post them here. I'll have my mechanic do the swap.
"Cheap" insurance. I'd rather blow a cheaper radiator than a transmission..

Still no recall from Nissan on that known issue..crazy..

as long as the "cheaper" radiator doesn't blow it's internal transmission cooler seals

got it. Looks good. well packaged and radiator cap fits no issues. Looks the same as original.
Looking at instructions, doesn't seem too difficult to do the swap.
What coolant fluid do you recommend ? Nissan oem ?

..........doesn't surprise me either
it's cheaper to manufacture stuff in countries where they can spew pollutants into the air & water with little or no restrictions
the ECM relays (Nissan Parts - not aftermarket) I just installed for the recall campaign were made in Thailand, replacing the original ones that were made in Japan Rolling Eyes

yep..most of the Asian car makers ( honda, toyota, nissan..etc..) have parts from all over Asia.

I have to replace a US made radiator with faulty design by an Indonesian one..the irony..
