It does not necessarily mean much
It could be a few things causing it

If you drove hard and parked
Then the Turbo will be very hot
That top tank runs directly down to the Turbo and its placement is very specific in that it's location help cool the Turbo even when the engine is stopped

So if you parked and the Turbo was red hot then it would continue cooling which can boil the water inside but the rest will continue to run down
So not necessarily a issue

The other possibilities could be something like the radiator cap is old and needs to be replaced
And this happens allot too

Pretty much what I would suggest is that you get a engine pressure test done to check if you have head gasket failure
Which happens if it overheats

And if it passes then it is less likely to have any issues

Maybe get it checked over by one of the repair places like Wayne's

Hi All

I am Alan, from Cape Town. Recently bought a 2010 Fozzie 2.5 XT Premium. Long story short, I wanted a fun car, then with the birth of my little girl, I needed space. So the Fozzie was the perfect match of space and fun.

6 weeks into owning it, I had to replace the gearbox, but luckily had a maintenance plan to cover the costs.  :'(

Think in future I need to get a TBE, but for now I will let her burble quietly.

Happy to see that there are like minded folk out there  :D
Sorry to hear about the Gearbox
But at least you got new one now

What broke?

I had the same thing on a pajero I was looking at buying...I closed the bonnet, turned around and walked away. Subsequently heard that the guy who bought it hauled out R80k for a redo on the engine. My advice...walk away and keep looking

What does the coolant expansion tank look like? On the side of radiator. Any grey/brown residue there? Or bubbles? Level correct?

If there is hissing and bubbles at the turbo tank then either the coolant has been recently replaced and is still self-correcting the level, or head gaskets are blown.
