    I drive a 2013 Smart Fortwo pure and it is mysteriously losing coolant. When I drive the 10 miles from home to work it goes from the max to minimum line in the reservoir.

    I have a 2012 Smart Fortwo Pure (451). Got it around 6 weeks ago. When I start the vehicle the coolant shakes a bit too much and the noise its loud.

    I have a 2008 Passion with 28k miles. Driving on the highway for 70 miles, the car stalled out with no warning lights whatsoever. Wouldn't re-start. Had it towed and am now being told by the dealer that it overheated to the point that it literally melted the engine. How could this happen...
