Does anyone else have the same prob or noticed this- The engine temp gauge always remains below the middle (points to below the temp icon on dash) on the dash of my car? It July and the weather has been hot, does the thermostat stick open or broken inside the T/stat housing? just want to find out before I start pulling things apart!
Cheers guys help needed!

hmm, ok, thats another thing i need to check- opps- the fan! must admit I haven't heard it running yet- must be extremely silent compared to my last car! I'll get it up to temp and see where on the gauge the fan kicks in..

My needles never gone over the 8 o'clock position, no matter what the ambient temperature. Never really noticed the fan though TBH.

My temp needle always remains below half way, but also my fan hardly runs either - I think this frequent fan running people are talking of is related to the A/C, not the warm engine ;)

Normal.
Fan will come on if you idle for a long time or have the AC/CC switched on.
[which you should leave on]

Fan running at normal speed, either controlling engine temp in traffic or when air con is on is VERY quiet.
I only notice mine when it goes on to fast speed when air con is working really hard and car standing still
