Yep, Same here...regular city driving shows the temp to be about halfway between 40 and 80 (variations dependent on outside temperatures, traffic, etc.), but made a run last weekend to a lake about an hour away and actually pushed it a little...temp never got above 85...
Mine is around 60 degree celsius most of the time.
I put new thermostat and coolant, but still it does not go more than 60 by the time I get to work (highway driving). It went around 70 in the city, though. I start suspecting that gauge or t-sensor might be faulty.
95 after 5-7 minutes of driving, consistent never any higher, winter, summer, mountains, sealevel. Replaced thermo, flushed system with purple power and water and added glysantin coolant, now runs at 85-90. Aux fan kicks on at 100.
