Yes, if the check engine light comes on, there is defintely a problem. Could minor or not so minor. Is this a new vehicle with only 200 miles on it? What are you worried about? The warranty will cover any repair costs.

You can take it to the dealership and get the codes read. Autozone or Advance Auto will also read the codes for free. If you post the codes, I am sure one of us can give you an idea as to what the problem is. As an FYI, I just saw an OBDII scanner at Harbor Freight for $40.
