Congrats! What color? Manual or auto?

Small cars can take a while to heat up. It takes this little 1.5L aluminum engine a few minutes to warm up even here in Georgia. I imagine if your cold engine light (blue temp light) is on much more than 10 mins or so, then you should check with your dealer.

I went to dealer for a chat and talked to guys in shop. they said nothing to worry about. takes a bit to warm up. similar to temp being low on cold day. he said after 5 mins of driving it should shut off. two days in a row after 4 or five mins. it just shuts off. he said i can't hurt anything by driving it like that. its just how the sensors are.

Good to know, that should save some owners on here a lot of running around and having to figure out things.
