I personally watch temp gauges in my other cars to observe when something is out of the normal. Same basic idea for me behind oil pressure gauges, amp/volts, and what ever else is commonly on a dash in other makes. For a pretty new car though I honestly do not care enough to go through any trouble to see things of this nature. Though with that said, years back on my truck I noticed the cruising temps were higher than normal but not in a dangerous range. I eventually made note of it to a mechanic and his response was that more than likely is a sign of a bad EGR and/or oil cooler, sure enough that was the case.
