: 1ST Problem With my "V"

Well, I guess something had to happen sooner or later. After over 1 1/2 years of wonderful, trouble-free driving, I got a "check coolant level" message. When I got home I found that the coolant level indeed was a little low and topped it off. This morning I discovered that there is coolant on the floor towards the front of the radiator. I'm making an appointment to take it in this morning. I know that this has been a classic "V" problem - is there a TSB that I could take to the dealer with me? Mine is a very early 2005 (built May 2004) so it should be covered by replacement, is that correct? I appreciate anyone's input.

There is an updated radiator for this problem.
It's on backorder so hope that your dealer had the forethought to stock one.

As of this morning there are radiators available out of Michigan... Your dealer should be able to get one fairly quick...
