Rad cap not holding pressure

So had a check up at the dealer. I pop in every 25-30k just to make sure everything is ok cause I'm far from perfect.
But to cut to the chase they sad my rad cap wasn't holding pressure causing me to lose precious rad fluid. Has anyone else had this happen?

it happened to me. i went to advanced auto parts or autozone and bought a new one for less then 20.00 bucks. just make sure you read what the cap states for PSI. also conform with the parts store. The guy at advanced tried to give me the wrong part and i had to take him outside to show him what the cap said.

Yeah that's what I did. Ran it for a good 400km nothing leaked. I'll keep an eye on it see what happens
