Mine runs 180 on the hiway, and around 210 around town with the ac on The OEM owners manual says that anything between 180 and 255 is normal depending on ambient temperatures. This is high in my opinion, but as long as the fans are kicking in, the thermostat is working, there is sufficient coolant in the system, and the radiator cap is working properly, I'd say you're in good shape if it's in that range.
