Pulled the car out of the garage this morning and, as I drove off, I noticed a warning message on the screen telling me to be aware of icy roads. The car was showing -0.5 deg C at the time. Bear in mind it was over 20 deg C at the time. 
After about 15 minutes driving, the temperature started to rise and eventually went back to a normal reading.
 
This is not the first time I've had problems with the thermometer in VX cars. I can remember having to get it replaced on at least 3 previous VX cars.
 
If it happens again, I'll get the dealer to replace the sensor.

Same here, replacement thermostat sensor etc which seemed to help as it was doing it about 3 times a week, then after the change about once every 6 months

I had the Icy Roads warning twice this weekend, both of them having done a short 6 mile journey to the horses field. Thecar was parked up for about 2 hours and the notice displayed upon starting with a temperature reading of 0.5 C.
As soon asI started to move the car offdown the lane the temperature readoutclimbed rapidly, at about 0.5 degrees per second, and settled at a more reasonable 16 degrees - that's Fife for ya!

It's not a problem as long as it resolves itself but, I shall keep an eye on it.

This has happened to me here in Spain when the ambient tempreture has been in the thirties. I could not believe that the warning for snow could be true. So Vauxhaul / Opel, what is the reason for this?

Does it matter? You must know whether it is cold or not? Anyhow, it seems they really do "all do that mate"
