    Buy it for the jug!

    It's expensive for this bottle because it's premixed. But mixing your own is a little rough without another container. So buy this bottle and one that's not mixed. Use this one until empty...Read complete review

    It's expensive for this bottle because it's premixed. But mixing your own is a little rough without another container. So buy this bottle and one that's not mixed. Use this one until empty and then pour half of the nondilluted mix. Add water and you have two jugs ready to roll!

    Not worth the money.

    The pre-diluted Dexcool works, and works well, but I never saw the point of paying for water- just buy the undiluted Dexcool and mix it yourself- save some money!

      Comments about Prestone DEX-COOL® 50/50 Prediluted Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant:

      My GMC truck requires Dex-cool coolant. This 50-50 blend saves the time required to mix straight Dex-cool with distilled water to reach the same mixture, not to mention the purchase of the water.

                Pre-mixed is a smart way to buy antifreeze now. Sure, you can buy concentrate and mix it with distilled water - do not use tap water - but that's a lot of extra work. Buy it pre-mixed and you know the concentration is correct and the base water is pure. This is a good product from a reliable supplier along with the convenience of dealing with your local Advance Auto Parts store.

                        Premixed with distilled water. Makes it very easy to add or change coolant. On the negative side you could buy distilled water and the pure mixture and it would still be a lot cheaper. Depends on your disposition.

                            its already premixed with distilled water. makes coolant change/flush a tad easier, being its not wise to use non distilled water with dexcool! this isn't your old green stuff.

                              This is the coolant recommended to be used in the owner's manual for my 2001 Chevy Malibu. I try to always buy only this kind since I don't want to mess up anything. It may cost a little more than the store's brand but it's worth it.

                                  Buying the 50/50 is like paying for water- why not buy the regular coolant and mix it with water yourself- save some money?

It meets or exceeds all ASTM and SAE standards for coolant corrosion protection. It meets GM6277M, Ford WSS-M97B44-D, and property and performance specification requirements of DaimlerChrysler MS-7170, MS-9769.

                                      Hi Bill, good question! This DEX-COOL 50/50 prediluted antifreeze will not be compatible for your 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited as this vehicle requires Chrysler Material Standard MS-12106.
