i think i have a coolant issue on my 08 accord coupe v6. my wife drives the car and one day she pull up next to me and i smell antifreeze i think it was 11k miles on it then. i said cant be the car. so couple months later the smell comes again and so i had to do a oil change, so i took it to my friends shop and did the oil change and we look around the water pump clean, thermostat and clean, raditor clean overflow clean no water drops. so the overflow was on min so i fill it to max and that was oct 1 and today i see it half way down. i use honda antifreeze blue coolant. and ideas i really dont want to go to the stealers.

I find many times these cars do give off a smell of coolant with no leaks found. Even the tiniest of leaks, that could be just vapor, leaves a strong smell.

Bring it back, you have 5yr 60k warranty on it. Tell them you've added and it has dropped.

It should drop about halfway between max and min if you check it hot vs cold.
