21 FE manual here. Pink coolant. Seems odd that they’d switch back and forth

Probably due to what is available on the assembly line.
Most likely. With all the COVID related supply shortages nowadays I’m sure they run out of the “better” (?) pink stuff occasionally and have to use the generic green stuff.

Other way around...I've been buying Kias since 2000 -- ALL of them have/have had green coolant...LOL
Interesting. I’ve always thought the green stuff was generic and the colored ones were specific for certain manufacturers. Maybe Kia wants to try to make service easier and cheaper?

I have pink in my 21 FE and it will soon require a top up. What do I use? I got pink/red Asian Vehicles Peak stuff, but it’s red while the stuff in my car is clearly very pink.

Original from the car on right, new bottle stuff on left.

Ok. I guess the Peak stuff I have will work, it’s just a slightly different color. Thanks for the help guys

I just put the red/pink Peak stuff I bought in. Seems like the same technology, even if the color is a little different
