30K service

Bringing in my 06 for the 30K service tommorrow. Decided to go to the dealer as the factory warrenty will expire soon so I will ask them to go over it carefully. Looking forward to a good service. Warnock in NJ appears to be a good dealler. We shall see!!

Spent 6 hours waiting for the vehicle on Sat (my fault as i planned to wait and did not realize it sould take so long) Charged me 549.00 for the 30K service. Was very pleased. They found a leak in my transmission line and replaced them under factory warrenty even though it expired a week ago. Even washed it for me. Overall very happy.

The one question I have is, I notice my coolant reserve tank is empty. I checked the radiator and its full of coolant so I'm guessing I may need to take it back and have then add a bit? Do you all have coolant in the reserver tank?

update: just called, they say air buble likely caused the shortage and bring it back to add coolant.

The coolant resevoir should be filled up to the "Full" mark.

The reserve tank holds quite a bit. If the dealer doesn't fill it up, you can buy the HOAT coolant usually for under $20 a gallon.

I thought the coolant resevoir had a "Cold" and "Hot" mark? I could be wrong though and its to cold to go outside and look.
