    Hi. My car's needle of temperature gauge never gets to the middle ... any ideas why?

    Looks normal to me.
    It usually stays below middle in all the cars that I have come across. Even in 32 degrees should ideally stay below middle unless you are really thrashing it.

    That's perfect for a K Series Accord , that's how is should be. Water temp is about 88 degrees there, it may briefly head toward the middle on a very hot day in stationary traffic but should not stay there long and should never go over the middle mark.
