Checking Coolant Level and Adding Coolant
The coolant provides year-round protection from corrosion and freezing down to -31 °F (-35 °C) (-40 °F (-40 °C) in Nordic countries).
Regular checking of the coolant level is part of servicing. The coolant level only needs to be checked when a warning message appears on the multi-function display in the instrument panel.

Coolant is hazardous to health. Coolant can be deadly to children or pets if consumed.
Hot Engine Coolant

A significant loss of coolant indicates a leak in the cooling system.
