The radiators (as well as the rest of the cooling system parts) need to be replaced on these cars about every 60K-70K miles. On the radiator the plastic gets brittle with aging and you can get sudden catastrophic failure at the key connections like the main coolant hose connections. If you do some searching you can find all metal radiators for the same or less than an OEM plastic/metal replacement. Bonehead Performance has Mishimoto radiators at a pretty good price.
