I've seen several people post with this message and as long as it went away and didn't come back, they said that it was just a software glitch. The car hadn't thrown any codes and it never re-appeared. Keep us posted.

I had a single occurence of the message at 6 months and 5K miles. The dealer checked and printed out the log but could find no problem. Now at 12 months and 8K miles there has been no recurrence.
