Baleno Coolant issue
I have a query regarding the coolant in my Baleno. I went to Motorcraft service guys about a month back for some minor job. There I came to know that there was no coolant in the coolant bottle under the bonnet. The service guy filled the bottle about half with water and told me not to worry and that the coolant will be added in the next service (which was due in about 15-20 days). I asked him if its ok to drive with only water and no coolant in the bottle he said its perfectly all right since the bottle contains only the reserve coolant / water.
Now, about 1 month later I got the car serviced (5th service). The service guy topped the coolant bottle with about half litre coolant instead of replacing the water with all coolant.
I would like to know is if it is ok to have a mix of water and coolant or should I get it replaced with pure coolant ??

Does not matter much, the coolant in the radiator is a mix of coolant and water anyways (60:40) and the coolant bottle is pure coolant.
If the level in the coolant bottle goes down, fill it up with pure coolant yourself. The level should be ideally between the Max & Min in the bottle.
