Anyone rezognise this leak?

Got leak under my 23K GC Laredo 3 days ago, car stays in dealership and I am waiting for call to know what is this. But could anyone here do this before dealer please? Color of leak looks like coolant, but I am not sure. Thanks!

Re: Anyone rezognise this leak?

First the stupid question - it's not just water from A/C condensate is it?

Second question - Was the coolant perhaps overfilled, and that's coming from the overflow line (i.e. when you checked the coolant resevoir tank, was it overfilled and is the puddle beneath the end of the overflow line)?

Third question - Overfill of the washer fluid resevoir?

I don't have a wk2 to check the location of these things relative to the photos.

Neither, first as I said it is reddish looking leak, second - leak got started after I start my engine while cold outside, about -10C that morning also another site of the car to overfilled pipe out. Third - no color is reddish but not blue as my washer fluid.
Actually I just got call from dealer and it is coolant line to the heater which got leaked, seem not very significant repair and car will be ready tomorrow morning. Still strange for 23k miles car. Thanks!

Um maybe I'm way out in left field here but if it is just a hose why will it take an entire day to fix it ? If they found the leak they've don't the hard work, replace refill,burp and send it out the door ...1 hr tops.

I am not sure when it will be done, they said I could pickup today but I can't Anyway, my friends Lexus small RX suv is about 200K miles and nothing got changed besides oil and tires/brakes for 10 years of driving. I hope Jeep could learn one day from such amazing quality of anything including this hose and other rubber parts.

Re: Anyone rezognise this leak?

My sister inlaw's lexus RX was in the shop monthly over the three year period she endured it. Sometimes you get lucky but the Lexus is not that great, she used to get stuck on wet grass in the back yard If Lexus could learn how to make a SUV instead of cars, they could be OK someday.

Ok ...I was just thinking maybe they were trying to cover something up like when the tech was looking for the leak he shoved a screwdriver through the radiator
Don't get me started on overpriced Toyota's with fancy name tags...

Not sure, Land Cruiser version of Lexus is excellent suv, way better than most existing. Yes, it is overpriced but GC also not as cheap car too. Anyway, I am considering it as minor bug since it is fixed in 3 days Hose could leak in anything I agree

Re: Anyone rezognise this leak?

I just got my wk2 back today after an entire week in the shop.....for a power steering hose replacement. It seems that this hose is pront to failure on 2012 models. The failure rate must be high enough to cause a one week back order on the part.
