I like it for diagnostic purposes. Lets say I just replaced my Water Pump. And.. I forgot to tighten something to specs or whatever. The leak only appears as soon as I start driving the car. I then see the temp gauge climbing like it should, then DING "Low Coolant" So, I pull over, check the coolant, whatdaya know? The coolant is low. Let the car cool down for a minute, drive home, and I don't have to get a tow, or deal with any of that ****. With me, checking the coolant level everytime I am under the hood, there will never be a drop of coolant missing. But you cannot plan for the unexpected.

if you just replaced your pump you should be under the hood checking the coolant for the fist few days.
