Did they charge you an hour of labor?

For half that you could have ordered your own software and done it yourself.

Increased Emissions

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!

Ha ha .... true! These cars are expensive to maintain. Mine only has 51k miles on it, so hopefully nothing major anytime soon (fingers crossed).

I'm getting it fixed this week. The light is back on after 2 days of resetting the code.
