No puddle of fluids is normal except for a/c condensate on a hot day. Best to check out the source. For antifreeze, only, that's the radiator, a radiator or heater hose, or the overflow tank. Good luck.

Agreed... NOT normal. Get it checked out. Keep us informed as to your findings.

Angus - are you sure it's antifreeze? As Robin suggested, it could be condensation from your AC. If you haven't already done so, test it by touch. If it's antifreeze, it will be a little slick and should also have color to it. Another determining factor could be the location of the puddle. AC condensation is normally back more toward the middle of the car while most coolant leaks will be closer to the front and radiator. If you can, get a light and look under the car and see if you can trace it back to a source. Hopefully it's just normal condensation, either way - good luck :)

are you 100% sure its the anti freeze and not the dreaded tranny leak? The color will be a pink/purplish if its tranny. Get underneath and find out where its coming from.

If its tranny leak dealership will know about it and fix it.

I had my car into the dealer for the tranny leak involving a certian TSB. While there they told me that Chrylser wanted to replace the coolant tank on my SRT. My coolant tank wasn't leaking, so maybe they are having leaks and are starting to replace them. You might want to check with you dealer. Good luck.

The coolant tank replacement was related to the coolant gunk TSB. If the coolant tank wasn't totally crudded up by the stuff (mine wasn't) they didn't replace the tank. If it was nearly full, the easiest thing to do was replace.
