Edit: The additional $30 shouldn't be that much of a concern when its a part to keep your engine from overheating. I'd rather spend a little extra to protect myself from larger repair costs and the headaches associated with them
plus the lifetime warranty that we have.. itl be our last water pump we by for this car
