    Coolant

    Bought a brand new 2014 WRX.. What coolant should I use?? I've got so many answers online, so I'm just writing here for some help. Should I just go to the dealer and buy whatever they have??

    You shouldn't. Why do you need coolant on a brand new car?

    Use the OEM Subaru coolant and whatever mixture they suggest.

    The coolant is specified in the owner's manual that comes with every new car. The answers you got online are irrelevant.

    Read the manual from cover to cover. It'll save you time and money.

    I've done this from day one and use distilled water to dilute it.

    I believe the new Subarus use the pre-diluted Subaru coolant mixture.

    The blue super stuff is prediluted but I don't hesitate to top off with distilled water if need be. Then again my location never gets very cold so freezing point isn't a concern for me.

    2008 STi (only) and all 2009 models use Subaru Super Coolant. Good for 11 years or 220,000kms.

    Just go buy some from Subaru if you want some laying around.
