    I noticed today with 6k on my 2010 the overflow tank tube has pink coolant leaking down it. Anyone else with this? This doesn't seem normal.
    Anyone?

    Mine has a slight leak right where the overflow tube connects to the overflow bottle. Does not seem to be a problem, but I wonder why toyota does not put a clamp there.

    Exactly. But on a 2010 would you expect after 6k ?

    First of all, if it is not on the illustrated parts breakdown as an installed part, you are not going to be making anybody do anything.

    Secondly, it far cheaper in time and money to just buy the clamp and install it yourself.
