Mine is at the dealrship right now for the exact same thing. The coolant will get down to a level about 2 inches below the MIN. line and stay there and not puke. If I fill it up to the MIN line it will puke down to that point. I had it checked out at a shop before it went to the dealer because I know the dealer will sit on it for a week before looking at it. 2 possible problems: 1. EGR cooler 2. headgaskets. My cooler checked out OK, so it must be headgaskets leaking (not bad, but will only get worse). I'll let you know what the dealer says when they do their diagnosis.

It could be that you just had too much coolant and it puked a little. The reservoir is only supposed to be full to the minimum line. I also added an 08 cap to stop it from puking.

make sure the surface of the resvoir is flat . test the cap to make sure it is holding pressure . those are 2 parts of the egr cooler tsb . I have found a lot of times when the cooler goes it heats the overflow tank to the point of warpage . i replace thoses under waranty when i do them
