I have a 2008 V8 with 77,000 miles. I had the extended warranty 7years/100K but it expired recently (7 years mark).
I checked the radiator P/N and it is one of the bad ones.
For the peace of mind, I'm thinking of having the radiator fixed before it's too late...Can a Nissan dealership do it ? Do they have a better radiator now ? I could do the bypass but would like the work to be warrantied..just in case..

Can I use a new 2012 radiator in my 2008 V8 ?

thanks !

finally got it swapped today at 82,500 for peace of mind.
Now I can breath a little better..
Keeping the paperwork in case Nissan decides to refund us one day..wishful thinking.
