Coolant Temperature 400E.


How long does it take to reach 80 degree at sub-zero temperature for a 400E?

The temperature now in my area (Canada) is about 3-4 Celsius, everyday I drive about 10 km to work, I don't warm up my car first, it takes nearly the whole trip to reach 80(15 minutes), is this normal? or I have to get a new thermostat?

My other cars reach normal temperature at 1/3 of the trips (5 minutes).

99 BMW 540i 6-speed 110K Km
03 SAAB 9-5 wagon 80K Km
92 400E (Sold) 245K km
Still missing the days with the Benz, it kept me busy.
