Ironically, the radiator hoses are relatively inexpensive to replace, but if one blows, you are stopped where you are. Now the cost increases as you have to figure out your options, especially if you were headed somewhere important.
The cost of an antifreeze flush is about $89.95, most places. Radiator hose replacement runs about $150.00 for both, on average. The other repairs range in price from $250.00 to as much as $1500.00!
So, as a preventative maintenance rule, it's good to flush the system every 4 years or 40,000 miles. Even the extended life coolant fails eventually. Don't be lulled into a false sense of security, after the warranty runs out, the manufacturer really isn't concerned with what the coolant will do to your system. Play it safe and flush the system. Save yourself time and money!
