Radiator leak!

So Moby's been down for 2 weeks now. I noticed pink spots on my garage floor, at first freaked out thinking transmission but after opening the hood noticed coolant was on the low border. Refilled it and within a day it drained half the reserve tank, so the leak was going good. I couldn't see it though. Took it to dealer, they said it will be 3 to 4 days before they can look at it... not much options, I left it there.

Called other dealers in Houston attempting to make an appt, they are all backed up 3 ot 4 days though a couple offered to make appts...

Either way, it took these guys more than a week before they looked at it. Finally Thursday last week they found the leak. I thought it had to be a loose fitting somewhere but it turned out actual radiator was leaking somehow, on towards the inside of the car. Clearly was defective.

Bottom line is they're still waiting on it and I won't get it at least until the middle of this week.

In the meantime I'm peeved at the service here in Houston.

Do any other Houston SRT owners have advice on what the best place is for service?
Does warranty work have to be done by dealer? I have a couple shops in the area I trust, but I'm not sure they can work on it under warranty.
Once warranty is up, is there any recommended shops by other SRT owners here on the forum?
