Saw a strange issue on my '06 RRS S/C yesterday - I drove out 40-50 miles to the mountains, then hit some deep-ish snow, using snow mode, then got back on pavement, turned off snow mode, and on the highway the engine didn't want to keep warm - I could manually regulate it by downshifting.
A few miles later I pulled over, restarted the engine, and the issue went away.
I figure if it was a thermostat, it wouldn't be intermittent. Maybe it got stuck or confused in some cooling mode between snow mode and normal mode (e.g. fan clutch stuck on + slightly faulty thermostat?). Open to suggestions. It's been a great car so the prospect of chasing electrical gremlins isn't a fun idea for me...

Thermostat is the logical conclusion, as I mentioned above, but the fact that it disappeared after (and hasn't hit since) makes me want more explanation before buying a thermostat. Since the issue disappeared, it seems electrical. Are the thermostats electrically triggered on these cars? It would surprise me if there even was such a thing.
