Called dealer and he gave me the procedure to top it off. Which I also read in the owners manual. Took 3 cups of distilled water. He said that is pretty typical in these cars with a big drop in ambient temperature which we've had. Here's after the fill up. Car goes in for annual service (3 months early) in the next week or so. Hate the annoying light already reminding me 90 days out. Anyone else have to top off their coolant?

Cool. You don't want to add too much distilled. If you have to fill again, do a mix 50/50 with the coolant.

You normally shouldn't have to do this, but with these temp changes sometimes you can get a small leak as the hoses constrict or clamps get a little loose. Or maybe it was just a little low to being with when you got it.

I had a low coolant light come on 2 weeks after getting a $1200 first year service done at the dealer. Someone explain that one :)

If there’s no drip under the car, be concerned where the coolant fluid is going. Supposed to be a closed system unless very high pressure at which point the steam escapes but otherwise it’s going someplace it should not be.

If they did a coolant flush they probably did not bleed all the air out.
Most of time you have top off the coolant after a few days.
