    Its a known problem. Needs the sensor and header tank replacing IIRC.

    Mine is showing the same message when there is nothing wrong with the level and to top it off yet another fault has reared its ugly head today. The radiator cooling fan is constantly on at full speed as soon as the car starts (from hot or cold)

    salona, are you getting any warning messages? I think it's a thermostat problem (known problem as well). You need thermostat and tank-sensor to be replaced.

    No warnings apart from the false low coolant level warning and the thermostat has been replaced twice already as my idiot local dealership didn't record that they did the thermostat recall first time round.

    salona, there's a recall for the radiator cooling fan, had it done on mine last tuesday along with the clutch and brake sensors. Pop down the dealers and get them to work their magic. Doesn't take long, simple software patch.

    I had my sensor and tank replaced too took them 3 bloody days though, not exactly a quick fix! I'm now trawling the threads to see if anyone else is having gearbox trouble (mine doesn't like reverse anymore) I really do despise this car so much I glare at it from across the car park daily,disappointed nobody has pinched it!
