I was away for two weeks and when I got back last night I found a puddle underneath the car, it's a big spot and its still wet. The coolant in the bottle is low so I am thinking my car has a leak. The car has been sleeping for two weeks and I never noticed a leak before. Should I be running the dealer or is this normal?

You need to be a bit more descriptive as to what the puddle is. Coolant is water based, tranny/power steering is reddish and engine is brown/black. Which is it? Put your finger in it, rub them together, smell it. Report back.

Without knowing the actual color of the fluid it's had to tell where it came from.

the puddle is black from all the dirt it mixed in with over the two weeks. It has a shine to it that makes me think its the coolant plus the fact the level in the coolant bottle is low.

I have a similar problem minus the puddle, I've had my coolant filled twice so far. Its now back at the minimum level and about to go under again, I had the dealer pressure test the system and no leaks were discovered, but when I purchased the car they said the coolant is good and will not need to be replaced until 100k miles.
