I think I might pop one of these on as well. Every year or so I have to add ~300ml of coolant, which I know is probably nothing too serious but one of these alarms could be cheap insurance against an engine failure
I just added coolant for the second time in almost 20k miles. Both times it was 1/2-3/4" below the cold fill line.

based on my records I'm having to add a splash of coolant every 6-8k miles. it's not a lot but it's something I'm keeping an eye on

I have found the solution for my peace of mind to include always having a full jug of premix coolant in an "emergency fluids kit" I keep in a milk crate in the back. I also have washer fluid, a couple quarts of 0w20, and some DOT4 brake fluid.

Lol add a jerry can of gasoline to the list. My 2011 with 109k miles ran out of gasoline with 96 miles “remaining” smh…..no codes or anything honestly. I came to a stop at the light and upon accelerating it died on me. I kept cranking it but it wouldn’t turn over. I pulled the negative cable “just because” I couldn’t think of anything else in the moment. Upon reconnecting the battery and turning the ignition on, the fuel graph showed empty, but still had 96 miles remaining lol. That damn computer. It kinda makes sense though because i did wonder a few days ago why this tank of gasoline was lasting me so long
