Coolant Level Warning...common?

Hi All,

Yesterday I was driving and got a coolant level low indicator warning. I checked the coolant and it is indeed low (below the minimum). I looked all over the car and I don't see any sort of leak. There are no drips, sprays etc. in the engine bay, or under the car. I've never had a car need coolant without a leak. Is it common for a Land Rover to need coolant to be added after 30,000kms? It seems odd to me.

Thanks for any help!

Yes, with the heat wave lately, this is normal to top off coolant fluid.

Had to do that with my BMW last week as well.

Now if it started needing to be topped off more than a month, then I'd worry...

It was a leak. The car has now been towed to the dealership to be fixed. Sad really, as the car is pretty new, and this is the 4th time I've had to have it in for some sort of non-normal service.

My 2018 Sport has under 9K miles and the low coolant light came on today. I was about 5 mins. away from home. I checked the level when the car cooled down, the fluid is below the minimum level line. I'll need to get it towed to the dealer and try to arrange for a loaner car for the weekend. This is very frustrating to have non-normal issue already in a car that is 7 months old.

Add some water to bring it up above the min level and it should clear itself. If the level drops again then phone the dealer.

That happened last year on my 2016 DS. Turned out to be a slow leak from the water pump. Replaced under warranty the next week.
