    I've been trying to make a note to check if this is a problem on other cars. So far I've had 2 17's come in with the same hose lose. One was leaking enough to empty the overflow reservoir and the rad was down about a cup. I just had another 17' with 45k kms, it had light traces of dried coolant just below the rubber hose on the cvt cooler pipe. I managed to open the clamp and push the hose on a little further. I'll keep an eye on it to see it holds. Other's may want to take a look at theirs if you have a cvt. There are 2 rubber hoses that go into the front of the cvt, the one I see leaking is the upper one. It's easy to see from the top, right below the upper rad hose to the left of the cvt dipstick.
