This is a 2019 Trax, front wheel drive, my wife noticed the antifreeze was a little low so we added a little to it, put it back up to the line, of course this was after it set over night, so now every once in awhile u have to add a little to it, not very much but this seems a little odd to me since there is no signs where it maybe going too, is this normal for these trax after they have roughly a 100000 miles on the engine ?..

Mine did the same, I would about a liter per 3 months. Bought GM's stop leak and it stopped leaking, never had to add coolant since. This is for small leaks only.

Nope, you need the GM coolant, pink in color. It is better for our aluminium heads and blocks.

No need for flush just don't ad anymore. You can get pure antifreeze or premixed at dealer or ACDelco store. Just crush one tablette and put it in the reservoir. Fill to line with fresh coolant. It should stop leaking within the first 200 miles of runtime.
