Default DexCool Coolant

I was looking through some of the threads on here and saw that a couple of people said not to use DexCool, but they gave no reason why. I will be replacing my coolant soon and was told to buy DexCool.

What would the best coolant be to get?

Zerex G-05 (HOAT) coolant is readily available thru NAPA for a reasonable price and is approved by Chrysler.

DO NOT use DexCool. DexCool is Organic Acid Technology (OAT) whereas Chrysler specifies Hybrid Organic Acid Technology (HOAT). Don't go by color...that is merely a dye and has nothing to do with the coolant chemistry.

Mix 50/50 with distilled water.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I will make sure I get HOAT.
