We just got my wife's 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee back from the dealer.
I had been smelling coolant after driving it for a week or so, but didn't see a leak. I never saw any puddle under it in the garage or anything. We took it in to get checked, and they had to replace the water pump (still under warranty).

I can't believe the original went with only 18000 miles. Has anyone else seen one go this soon on a 5.7 Hemi? Now I am worried about my Ram truck and Challenger.

I thought the new OAT purple coolant was supposed to be the best stuff ever. On the older cars I used to add a water pump lube with antirust to the coolant, and rarely had a pump fail. I am afraid to add anything to this new stuff though, hearing how it can gel up if other coolant is mixed in.
