It is if you're running a stock T-stat and a original radiator.....though it's a tad high. A new OE replacement rad with a 180 stat would drop temps quite drastically.

I got the 180 because mine went up to 210 before... at the moment it snows, and it takes looong until the car has reached it's operating temp.

Do you have an aftermaket gauge(electric or mech). But your temp is normal until you change the fan settings. but temps should lower at cruizing speeds.

the best solution is a better/bigger.

My car ran hot too.
the stock radiator is so thin, it's crazy.
