Sitting in the pink puddle



12 days old , 515 miles and to the shop she goes Came out of my office today to see a pink trail of coolant running from under my new baby.

I think I read about a bad hose clamp going to the heater core ?

How many of you has this happened too?

Re: Sitting in the pink puddle

Mine blew off at 700 miles. Didnt even notice the temp guage go up. I thought i hit something because i felt something like an air hose flopping around and hitting right below my feet. Then temp guage shot up and steam pouring from everywhere, got out and coolant was pissing out behind the left front tire. Had it towed to the dealer and it was fixed in two hours.

Re: Sitting in the pink puddle

yes it is, I called the dealership to schedule to get it in tomorrow the service guy asked for the license plate #, I had to laugh and tell him I have not had it long enough for the plates to arrive yet.

It sucks having to take a brand new vehicle in for service, I hope this is a one time fluke and not the first of many, lol
