Interesting. Because I don't drive at that speed maybe I won't see the problem? Highest speed limit around here is 70 MPH and an occasional boost to around 80 is possible but that is to clear a hazard or quickly get around a vehicle then back down to my cruising speed.

Goodmonkey, same here. I think i’ll set my speed warning to 75 mph just in case. I wonder if having the adblue heater service action done helps this situation?

I don't know, but I had that service done with the heater core last month.

I just saw where you're at. I used to laugh a little seeing the sign for that exit when I was headed to the coast as a teenager.

looks like it's been around for a bit but now some formal information from other than VW.

VW sent me a letter saying they've fixed the issues. Emissions mods are again available, and if you've already had the mod an update is available. They claim no impact in DEF consumption (or anything else) with the correction, so it sounds like it was possibly a bug in the MIL logic, rather than needing to change control parameters.
