    Coolant change

    Hey, I went to get my coolant changed and the Mechanic said that even though it has been 5 years since I bought the vehicle -the coolant did not need to be changed since it gave an OK reading on this little coolant tester strip he had. The car is a 2002 WS6 with only 28,000 miles on it. What do you guys think? Should I go ahead and get it changed anyway-just to be safe??

    Yes, definitely.

    I'd change it every 5 years regardless of what the test strip says, its just cheap insurance.
