But if I go to a private repair shop an not the dearlership, I have to trust that they will do a good job but it will be less expensive maybe 700-800 dollars who knows???? I never brought a car to a private repair mechanic over where I live??? this is the 1st time I ever had this problem with a car I own???

Yeah. Only the car purchase cost is more expensive here. The new Trax LT's msrp is around $35K which is 150% more expensive than the US's I believe.

Okay. The car price is crazy here. Honda accord costs around $60K, Ford focus costs $45K, Jeep Wrangler (imported by private companies) is listed at $150K. No need to mention the luxury and super cars haha. Generally, the price is double/ triple compared to the US's same model due to tax.

A top line AMG Benz (S400) here is listed at $350K, same price for Porsche (Panamera). Bentley or Roll Royce new model is around $1 million. Yeah, $1 million US Dollars. Interest rate for car loan is 7-9% so its not a good option haha. Overall, the living expense in Vietnam is very cheap if you avoid spending on something luxury like cars (Chevy cruze or Honda civic still counted as luxury lol). I heard that CA is expensive, my mom's classmate is living in Boston which is also expensive rite?
Anyway, my Trax is good enough for me lol. No issue except for this coolant leak which is not really affecting driving experience so far.

I have an antifreeze Leak in my 2018 Chevy Trax AWD the leak is on the driverside below the front bumper, leak is not bad but its leaking but I need to get it repaired I keep refilling the resevoir up every few days or when I see its low I refill the resevoir up to the recomended line I opened up the hood to try to see where its coming from an the engine area is so compact it is hard to actually detect where the leak is from? Does anyone out there have this same problem before. My mileage is at 59,000 already...
At West Herr Chevy, in my area, they want almost $2000 to replace TWO Turbocharge coolant lines, which costs about $50 each and claim it's a six hour job. Plus, they are including labor, taxes, etc. This is in NYS. If this is the issue you are experiencing....find someone who will fix it for cheaper! I would do that anyway.

I have a 2016 LT 54000 miles. Just had to replace the water pump and I also am having the exact same issues with a small leak on drivers side. Salt Lake Valley Chev told me it is a small crack in radiator. Want 1400 to fix. Problem is I’m not paying it and also a radiator could not be found in the state of Utah. They supposedly Special Ordered one it’s been two months. They are on back order. I just check my antifreeze every few days and add a small amount. Used to love this car. Not anymore at this low of mileage I should not have to be replacing major components. This is the third Chevy and the last Chevy I will own. Used to swear by them. I’m done!

Yes. It worked great for my small leak. Mine was leaking at the fitting under the turbo. Saved about 5 or 6 hours of labor not to mention liters and liters of coolant. It hasn't leaked in over a year now. I know it just a band aid and not the cure, but if it will hold until it needs major surgery I will take it.

Thank you sir I will try them! I have a Trax that is a beautiful color, has the sun and sport package so i have a sunroof and a fabulous bose sound system. I bought it new to have a car I could rely on.....I have low miles and just really was angry and disappointed to have the water pump and radiator go at the same time. I am literally just barely out of warranty OF COURSE lol. Just shocked it happened at 54000 miles. I hade an 07 Impala I ran into the ground. I am diligent about service and am very easy on my vehicle. . The dealer said they found the radiator leak when they pressure tested it. I was losing a ton of antifreeze from the middle of the passenger side around the passenger seat. When the dealer called me and said they pressure tested it they only found a small crack/leak on the drivers side in the radiator. I called the service manager back and told him to check it again because i was not losing coolant out the front. He had the tech check again and he found the water pump issue. They could not find a radiator here in Utah so I had them fix the water pump and that was 2 months ago. To this day I have to put a small amount of coolant in every 4-5 days but there is never a drop/trace on my driveway or in my garage. It is leaking and burning off somewhere. I dont trust what the dealer said since I had to point out the water pump. I am no mechanic. I am buying tablets on my way home.
Thanks for the advice! Much appreciated!!
