Hi, I'm not sure if this is normal or if there's something else going on, My coolant temperature gauge inside the car fluctuates quite a bit. The car doesn't overheat but when cruising on the motorway etc. Its down near 70 degrees and when stuck in traffic etc its up near 100 degrees.

Does this sound right?

Yup, sounds about right, mine did exactly the same. In my new car I found it odd that the temp never moved!

Both of mine sit just below 80 whilst driving and up to 100 when in traffic for a bit. If you think it's too low replace the thermostat for piece of mind.

thermostat is 83 degrees so if it doesnt warm up past that in normal running I'd put a new one in.
