Spider 3.2 V6

Warning Check Engine

Am I beginning a long and joyous relationship with my dealer? I have owned my Spider 3.2 v6 for exactly one week, returning home tonight Warning came up on dash "Check Engine".
I cant find any direct reference in the hand book, is there any common faults to check? or is it a trip back to the dealer. T & Ps all ok and car drove normally. Its a 2006.

Dealer as it could be the beginning of a claim so you want it documented from the start. When he resets the light or fixes the problem you want to know what the error code was to cause the light and what they did to fix it - it might come back.
Check the oil level before you return it though.
