Actually not. The starter of this thread is asking about a v8 from the mid 80s which is before the proliferation of the electric fan. I still don't think additional cooling is needed if everything is funtioning properly. Any design flaws should be taken care of by a recall. Remember these are world cars designed to operate in Siberia or the Sahara. Before the advent of rubber steering wheels when they were plastic, you could order with a white steering wheel for hot climates. Now that American Engineers will probably have a hand in design we may start getting crappy make it through the warrantee period design. That remains to be seen. Remember: A pessimist sees a glass as half empty. An optimist sees a glass as half full. A German engineer sees a glass twice the size it needs to be to insure no beer is spilled.
