New Subaru Super Coolant?

Just found this on NASIOC: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1397193

Quote:
All 2008MY STI models will be equipped with the new Subaru Super Coolant. The color of this coolant is blue and the first replacement interval is 11 years / 137,500 miles. After the first replacement, the service interval is every 6 years / 75,000 miles.
Quote:
The 2008 Impreza WRX STI and all 2009 MY vehicles are factory-filled with the new Subaru Super Coolant. This new coolant is blue in color and has an extended life of 10 years before servicing is required.

The current Subaru Long Life Coolant (green in color) CAN NOT BE MIXED with the new Subaru Super Coolant (blue in color). Mixing the 2 different types of coolants together will alter the protection requirements of the product and for the vehicle.

The new Subaru Super Coolant is required for all dealer warranty repairs to 2008 Impreza WRX STI and all 2009 MY vehicles that involve the draining and/or refilling of the engine cooling system. It should also be used when topping off of the cooling system, when installing an engine block heater, or refilling the cooling system after a collision that damaged the cooling system.

Subaru of America, Inc. will automatically ship one case (6 gallons) of the Subaru Super Coolant 50/50 mix to each dealership within the next week.

The part number for ordering purposes is SOA868V9270, which represents one gallon. This product is a 50/50 mix and does not require any mixing with water. This product must be ordered in cases of 6 gallons.

For dealers in extremely cold areas that require extra protection (below -34 degrees F), Subaru Super Coolant Concentrate is available in one quart bottles and can be ordered using part number SOA868V9260.

Dealers can order additional Subaru Super Coolant 50/50 mix and/or the Subaru Super Coolant Concentrate by going to Subarunet, Fixed Operations, Subaru Chemicals.

The part number for Warranty claim purposes is SOA635041, which represents one quart of the Subaru Super Coolant 50/50 pre-mixed product.

If you have any questions, please contact your District Fixed Operations Manager.

I wonder if the dealer will use the Subaru Super Cooant in MY03 when I have my system flushed this coming summer?

likely not ... as subaru has specified the product for the 2008/09's


of course you can request it specifically
but I would do so in advance and get a quote in writing as the costs vary

LOL no wonder when I got my new coolant it was blue instead of green. The dealer uses the same coolant in Volvo and Subaru, they told me it was the same.

Just a thought, but coolant isn't extremely expensive, and the side effects of overstreching coolant can be extremely expensive. So if it were me, I'd change it out every 60K or so.

Let's not talk the horror stories of GM long life coolant.

Wow, I hope it's not something stupidly expensive. I know people that swap out thermostats twice a year basically flush the coolant 2 twice a year.
