im surprised that Mishimoto didnt pop their head in here, i know they are on the forum because i've bitched about them before when my original radiator came in.
i went on to another forum im a part of (yes THAT other one). someone else complained about a leaking mishimoto, of course mishimoto popped their head in blaming chassis flex.
seems like mishimoto is so confident about their product that they always blame the vehicle its being installed in. at no point does it ever cross mishimotos mind that MAYBE their products are manufactured like shit, MAYBE its not the vehicle to blame, MAYBE the person welding their shit together has no idea wtf they are doing and their quality control is piss poor.
I see so many complaints from different vehicle owners about Mishimoto radiators at a certain point blaming chassis flex becomes a little bit ridiculous. i dont even understand how mishimoto makes money considering how many warranty radiators they ship out.
for anyone who reads this thread, DO NOT waste your time and money on mishimoto. just go and get an OEM radiator if your original shits the bed. nothing on the vehicle should last only 2K miles. your products are shit, mishimoto, our vehicles are fine. if you cant make a radiator that can withstand everyday use in a vehicle then maybe you shouldnt be making car parts.
btw Mishimoto, here is my case number; ODV-207-25558
they are sending me a new one (had to pay $30 for shipping). regardless of whether it leaks or not i'll steer away anyone who asks about it. my hopes are NOT high right now, im going to be bringing my OEM rad with me when i get the Mishimoto one reinstalled in case it decides to dump coolant on the ground
