Classic dad! Premixed coolant isn’t bad for your car, but it’s usually more expensive than concentrated coolant you can mix yourself. So you’re basically paying extra for water in the bottle that you could add on your own.
You can mix your own coolant at home for cheaper by mixing a 50/50 mixture of water and concentrated coolant. Hope this helps!
