    Look around the water pump and the radiator. You might want to check the coolant hoses too

    I am also having the same issue. I put in a gallon of coolant every week. Dealership cant find the leak. They even had it parked for 4 days with a puddle underneath 2 times and still nothing. I have no idea anymore with this car. I have an 06 cts.

    I had the same problem. Ultimately, replacing the water pump solved my problem. No more leaks on my 2006 CTS.

    The water pump sounds correct. I'm about to replace mine this weekend. It's the second one I replaced.

    Oil cooler cover is also a common spot to leak coolant. There is no gasket there and the silicone sealant fails over time.
