    Noticed a puddle under car today, went to dealer and after a quick look appears the end of rad is cracked or leaking at crimp, Can't get it in for a week. Need to get it on a hoist and remove pan for better look.........FFS !

    Let's hope that no one gets seriously hurt when they pop. I could see some bad things happening running 80 and a radiator blowing the side out.

    ++UPDATE+++

    Well I had some time this weekend and was determined to find the leak and I did

    It turns it it was the plastic drain plug on the lower corner of the radiator on the passenger side ( beside the drain hose )
    It has to be turned all the way until it seats and clicks, it wasn't
    It is now and all is good :)

    So if you see a leak from the passenger side, check that first
