Yours is the fourth report of a bad radiator I've seen. We have had at least one other member on site that had the same issue. I wonder if GM has received a batch of bad radiators from its supplier?

A friend here in STL has his leaking as well. He has a new convertible. Less than 1000 miles.

Just had my radiator replaced this morning. A leak was noticed by a service tech while doing a oil change. It came off the build line Oct 7.

Which dealership did you use, Raiderh20boy? Did you go to Rio Vista or somewhere else?

I just talked with my friend that has a new conv. and he has a transmission coolant line and fitting being replaced that connected to the radiator that was leaking. What the deal with these leaks? I am sure there are others out there that have not noticed the problem. I am going to my dealers tomorrow to be sure it's the radiator and not the transmission coolant lines. Leak seems to be in the same location....putting in my radiator tomorrow;-(

Jim; While your there for this replacement ask if there is any kind of a TSB for this issue yet. It appears that there is an increasing number of owners reporting this problem. I suspect as spring weather arrives there will be even more reports of this problem reported.

Noticed some fluid in my driveway as I closed the garage door today, seemed like two streams, thought it might be the AC unit giving off accumulated ice.
I'll look closer tonight as I leave for an appointment.

Thanks for the heads up

Guys: Please check and see if there is a TSB or PI for this problem when you take your car in for replacement radiator. The number of owners reporting this problem is growing at an alarming rate, and I feel like GM has to know there is a problem by now.

It appears to be the coolant strictly by color and it matches the Same color fluid as that in the tank closest to the passengers side firewall
