In this recent cold snap, by 2010 NG9-5 showed "coolant low" shortly after the first startup of the day. The rest of the day, no problem. Now that it has warmed up, the message has gone away. I looked in the reservoir, and the level is slight above the "cold" marker. I'm guessing this is no big deal, that in the true winter cold the coolant contracted to below the level, but I'd like the message to go away... is there any harm in adding a less than a cup of distilled water? or should I just buy real anti-freeze? or just ignore it until my next service, and have the techs top it off (although this will probably be in the summer so there will be nothing to top off)?
