    That reservoir is for the supercharger cooling system. Don't think they would have messed with it when replacing the rad.
    Level looks ok.

    If they took out the bottom they may have removed the line

    The engine bay had antifreeze all over it when I pict it up. The service manager said that antifreeze came out when they were taking the air out of the system.

    Might have just had some air in the system, i wouldn't say its "uncommon" after radiator work. Go buy some coolant and top it off. Or swing by the dealer and ask them to

    I stopped by the dealership and bought some coolant. I didn't bother asking them to top it of because they told me that was in a safe zone.

    Thanks. Mine seems a bit low since I had a radiator leak serviced. Like you, it's not worth it for me to argue with them.

    My car has felt out of alignment since I got it, and they say it's fine. The wheel always gas to be slightly cocked to the left not to track right. I am going to bite the bullet and take it to a pro.

    When I picked my hellcat after the rad swap they put 8 miles and got the floor mats all dirty on both sides. I hope they didn't give test drives.

    Haha. They "test drove" my car for a few miles too, but it was in valet mode. When I picked it up, everyone there gave me a hard time. I love that mode.
