Yes. It takes a bit of driving (from cold start) as the thermostat diagnostics call it a fail after a warm up delay and a bunch of other conditions. When I had the issue, it was like clockwork. 5 mi down the road it came back. First sporadically then every time. I would not fret on this and simply replace it or get it replaced. This this the easy one on this car! If you can't handle the cost and time to repair this you have something else coming for you down the road that my cast a shadow on this one LOL!
