    Thumbs up cla 45 amg: coolant warning and white smoke

    hi guys,
    today I was driving with sport mode and all of a sudden I noticed white smoke coming out of the passenger side and a coolant warning popped out once I parked and check it out. Before the smoke came out, I wasn't warn with any warning so I guess something must have leaked. sure enough, when I went out there was a puddle of liquid under the passenger side. Any idea of where its coming from and how much to fix? Also, do you think it will be cover in the Mercedes cpo warranty?
    thanks guys.

    Might not be that bad - maybe a bad/frayed line or connector - could be a real easy fix. The smoke was probably caused by coolant hitting a hot engine component. Have you had it serviced recently? Possibly someone at the garage f'd up. I wouldnt panic just yet. Keep us posted.

    Nah, I didn’t have anyone service it. Just happen out of nowhere. I’m heading to the dealership tomorrow and hopefully they will cover it under the warranty

    one of the reasons i didnt get the rip-off extended warranty is that they keep denying stuff saying extended warranty ( almost same as cpo i think) doesn't cover this or that vs vs.

    Update: after two hours of wait time, they told me that the coolant line blew. The good part is that it cover the warranty so I don’t have to pay a dime. FYI, I would definitely recommend purchasing the extended warranty and if they don’t accept it, I would just tow the car to the next dealership since towing is in fact cover in the warranty

    Oh good for you! Which “line” busted? Would like to know the cause ...

    Yeah I invoked their towing clause once early on ... 60 miles on one of the fanciest flat beds around

    they just told me the coolant line. ill ask for more detail tomorrow. I think it was because I put it in sport mode and floor it. when you floor it till 60k miles, eventually something goes bad.
