Correlation vs causation, though. The person who buys OE coolant is more likely to buy OE parts and take care of recommended maintenance. The person who buys green coolant may be buying whatever is cheap at Autozone - and that may be indicative of how they maintain their car regardless of whether the coolant itself is of sufficient quality.
