2010 CHEVY TRAVERSE RADIATOR
Very please with radiator I purchased, it appeared to be produced with high quality standards and included everything needed to make installation easy. I was also pleased and happy that I received it before the promise date. I will certainly be a return customer.

Ordered this radiator while we were on vacation. It was there in two days and with the help of the instructional video, was able to install it in an afternoon. Very satisfied with the product and shipping time.

Perfect replacement!
This was a perfect replacement fit for my 2011 Traverse. The installation video was spot on and easy to follow. Saved me about $1,000 in labor fees! Quick delivery. I definitely reccomend this product and A1 Auto!

Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
How long does this job take?
Chris A June 10, 2017
This job is estimated to take 2 - 3 hours to be on the safe side. In some cases you may complete in less time, but if you have not performed this replacement prior it could take longer.
Alex P June 12, 2017
Does this radiator come with a radiator cap ?
Robbin A September 14, 2018
No, it does not.
John B September 14, 2018
No you will have to use your old cap or buy a new cap..
J E September 14, 2018
Hi Robbin, I honestly cant remember as I purchased this years ago. I recommend calling 1A and asking the rep on the phone. They will be able to answer your question. What i can say is bang for buck, this was an amazing deal and fit my vehicle perfectly. In fact I installed it myself! Sorry I couldnt have been any more help. Thx Rich
Rich G September 15, 2018
A new cap is not included with this item. You may be able to reuse your original cap if it is in good condition or a new cap would need to be purchased. Thank you.
