When does it go back down? With the blistery cold conditions we've been having that'* not uncommon. My car has been struggling to get up to 180...and that'* with a 195 stat.
Since you just bought the car, can you take it back to the dealer? Granted it'* more than 36,000/3 years old, but most dealerships offer a 30 day warranty on used cars.
