That's perfectly fine. Normal operating temperature is between 195°F and 210°F. Your temperature gauge may even creep up to about the 220°F on a hot day, stuck in traffic, with the air conditioning on. HTH. -Jim


It's good. I have a 2008 Cobalt LT, had it a bit over a year, and it took me a bit to get familiar with normal op temps. Mine tends around 190F-192F on the freeway, a bit warmer on side streets. I got nervous originally when I would stop for a while and it sometimes got as warm as 219F, but never higher. At that point, the fan always kicks on, and cools it down to about 194-198.
