This is easy to diagnose; simply open the hood once a week and keep tabs on the coolant level . If this drops and the Orings and hoses are good....the coolant is going someplace...it does not readily evaporate..

Is this vehicle given her regular exercise ???.. a 15 mile trip every so often... this causes the moisture to boil off.
If not, and the coolant level is stable, then more frequent oil changes are in order, the condensation must go....
And, is the thermostat good ?? ; the engine should be warm within 4 minutes, hot within 6 or so...
