Added coolant again at 30K oil change for the Passat, only about 2K & 2 months after topping up to middle of the hash marks. This time I didn't get a warning but it was under the low has marks, we'll see how long this lasts.

May do phase 2 and water pump at the same time.

Update.....
All winter long my car has been on the frost heater. It hasnt had a below 50* cold start all year till today at work. No frost heater and 38*. Started car and coolant light came on. Pop hood and bottle is Low Low. I checked the coolant this past Sunday when i checked oil and stuff like i do every weekend and at that time coolant was at the top of the safe range. I seem to remember last year all coolant light and coolant loss issues were during cold starts. Wonder what the connection is...
