I had my radiator flushed at the recommended service interval and haven't had any problems. It's 100k miles, not 120k miles. Yours was ~1 year, 20k miles too late.

I had no luck with the $15 rotors. They warped after only 20k miles or so. I put $50/ea raybestos rotors on that hopefully will go a reasonable amount of time.
