1-800-Radiator(R) Targets 100 Percent Coverage of Cooling and Heating Replacement Parts for GM, Chrysler and Ford Autos

April 29, 2009

BENICIA, Calif., April 29 /PRNewswire/ — 1-800-Radiator today announced it will achieve 100 percent coverage of the replacement market for cooling and heating parts for General Motors, Chrysler and Ford automobiles by the summer vacation driving season.

Today’s news headlines focus on the problems of the three automotive giants and the likely closures of many parts suppliers of U.S. automakers. 1-800-Radiator CEO Mike Rippey says a huge and important segment of the auto industry will largely be overlooked unless someone steps up.

“Selling cars is one thing,” says Rippey. “But what about essential supply of radiators and air conditioning parts? What do you do when you need one, and the dealer where you bought the car is no longer in business? The country’s repair shops need a reliable source of quality parts, and they need them delivered quickly which is what 1-800-Radiator offers.”

1-800-Radiator is already well established as a provider of radiators and other parts to auto repair shops and do-it-yourselfers with 268 market locations nationwide which are stocked with over 120,000 replacement parts for U.S. automakers. In its U.S. and Canadian markets 1-800-Radiator delivers brand new replacement parts within three hours. 1-800-Radiator has 50 percent more locations in North America than it had two years ago supplying AC condensers, compressors, heaters, evaporators, dryers, mirrors, radiators and fan assemblies. All 1-800-Radiator parts come with a lifetime guarantee. Customers have a choice of either original equipment quality or aftermarket parts.
