I thought o well maybe because of the long drive it overheated.. but the next day, same thing, and same thing again and its been day 4, haven't had time to take it to a dealership yet but I have a feeling the thermostat broke. Anybody else had this problem yet?
When was your car built? If it was between a certain range from May to June there is a field service action for the active grill shutter harness having been broken from the supplier, which if this failed with the grille shutters closed could lead to this error message as the engine would then overheat.

This only matters if the car had the shutters and if they are stuck closed.
