I have to take it to be serviced for brake fluid so I guess I can ask about it then.

In the meantime, any ideas on what could be happening?

I don't know that much about cars so anything I could say that would keep me from getting completely taken advantage of would be helpful since I'm taking it to the dealership ('cause they give me a loaner car and I'm a single guy without another ride).
Oh no. You may have the dreaded coolant pipe leak that has plagued the N62 engine. Do a search on this topic as it can be a main factor for such a large loss of coolant.
