I just bought a Volkswagen Jetta 5 months back and I have to say I've been loving it. Unfortunately, I had an accident earlier today in which I mistakenly poured windshield wiper fluid into the antifreeze tank. Immediately realizing my mistake, I did not make the mistake of turning on the engine but instead drained the anti-freeze tank to the level it was at before I accidentally dumped wiper fluid into it. Since I live in the great north, using teflon wiper fluid is a must here. To be more specific, I used wiper fluid that was capable of not freezing in temperatures upto -49 C. My question is, should I take the car to a Volkswagen dealership and have them flush the system and then refill it with antifreeze (and pay the exorbitant fee I'm sure) or is it fine to just drive my car the way it is? Also, if I don't take the vehicle for servicing, will this result in the decline of warranty coverage?
Thanks for any help!
FEW details about the car:
Brand New 2007 Jetta with 2.5L engine
Yes it has the VW G12 antifreeze in it (the pink stuff)
