My 2012 SE had a radiator leak. It wouldn't go 2 weeks without emptying the reservoir tank. The replacement was fairly easy and straightforward, and we haven't had any leakage issues since then. I could easily tell that it was the radiator since the mounting legs/pins were wet and the foam sponge along the bottom of the radiator mount was wet, too.

The new cap seems to have fixed my issue too. I've put about 6K on my 2014 since replacing the cap with an OE and I haven't seen a drop in the coolant level in the surge tank...thankfully.
It's been over a year since I made the above post and I still have not had to add any coolant. Apparently the new radiator cap solved my issue....

I'll be changing the coolant out this fall so I hope taking the cap off doesn't cause a problem....I'm not a big fan of plastic surge tanks which depend on an O-Ring to seal.
