Re: Do new cars (BA XT) come with Anti-Freeze Coolant standard?
I think you will find that they come with a additive, to inhibit corrision, increase boiling temperature and decrease freezing temperature, this usually gives your coolant a red or green colour. You should not have any problem with the car in Australian snow conditions (atleast with coolant freezing). Special coolants are only usually required if you are going below -30 C.
The thing you might notice is your LCD screens, however its a reverseable change and as soon as it heats up they will go back to normal.
