Coolant service price?

Any idea what the shop charges?

If I remember correctly the normal Suzuki coolant is rated for about 15 minutes, the long life is 2 years (?) and there is a 5 year Honda coolant.

Is this is?

Shouldn't cost much, it's a simple drain and refill. Any modern coolant will be compatible with an aluminum radiator and engine, there are so many of them. Best is a silicate free coolant, the water pump will last longer. (Purpose of silicates is to scrub the inside of the system, but it's harder on water pumps with plastic impellers.) Zerex Asian long life 50/50 is what I've been using.

Suzuki long life coolant is rated for 4 years ... SUZUKI SUPER LONG LIFE...

Takes about 45 minutes to an hour, what's your shop rate?

I would guess they charge around $100 so if I could get it done for +/- $100 it will be worth it.
