Coolant light during initial startup
I have a '14 Touring model with less than 1000km on it so far. Noticed over the last week that upon startup in the morning (or when the car has been parked for a while), that the coolant light comes on - in blue. Understandably, the car needs to warm up in the morning. Just wasn't sure that after sitting in the parking lot while at work, the same thing occurs. Takes about 2mins or so (should time it next time) for the blue light to go away.
Should I still be driving it while it's blue or should it wait? Seems weird that I have to let a new car "warm up" as I thought cars these days are built without having to do this?!? I don't want to damage the car during this breaking in process - what do you guys think?
