My kid has a 2013 with about 90K on it. I was checking it out and found the coolant reservoir empty. Pulled the radiator cap and had to add a quart to top up the radiator. The cap had the center part plastic broken off on the inside. Apparently this is the part that holds the pressure. Got a new cap and now it seems to be working fine. I guess that broken off part has gone into the radiator. I'm assuming it will stay in the top tank of the radiator since it wont fit down the tubes.

Since the kid never looks at the gauge, I saved his ass by catching this before it puked out all the coolant and left him stranded.. I just cant get these kids to pay attention.
