It is no joke, this is the way weight loss is achieved in automobiles. I
am not fond of all the plastic that breaks especially in cold weather.
Also the aluminum in cars can be a pain too.
Just replaced my radiator too BTW.
Oh well 10 years is not bad, but of course the radiator in the 78 Audi
5000 is still going strong.
