The temperature gauge on most cars is "very nice", BUT, no more accurate than an idiot light...So, I would be extremely villigant about keeping your radiator system running at top efficiency, changing the coolant when required and regular inspections. If you think that's EXPENSIVE, it will be cheap compared to blown head gaskets or valve damage. Overheating is possibly the worst thing you can do to your car.
