If its really cold out it wont reach the normal (spot) until you really get it warm. If you live where its cold, i cant tell cause you dont have a location in your profile, take it on the highway and drive for a few miles, it should come all the way up to normal. If not, check your thermo

as the second BD wingless i shall add that, if you really do live in a cold climate like me. sometimes it take literally 15 minutes for my car to warm up to its original point. and also. during the winter months sometimes radiators work too effeciently. that is normal. i dont think you have anything to worry about. now if it starts getting overly hot then you might have a problem.

thanks for the responses. i live in buffalo newyork, it has been cold but today it was around 53 and it still didnt go all the way to the middle. its making me mad because i dont remember it being this way last winter. maybe im just paranoid.

heres a pic... sorry its sideways ( this is a pic of me driving for about 30 minutes with a temp around 53.. wasnt cold out)

It's probably normal. my '95 ran right in the middle. My dad's Buick runs nearly 1/4 towards the cold side. It depends on the car ('95 and '07 aren't really the same car much anymore, heh).

I have an '07 2.5i and I can tell u that ur gauge is fine, well that's to say that mine runs @ the same temp. So either it's normal or we both have a problem!!

my 07 is also like that. never seen it actually get to the center. the gauge is not a calibrated indicator, it's just a way to tell you when its cold, normal operating temp and too hot. the specific location of the needle means nothing in itself.
