    Many cars these days dont have a temp gauge. Civics, mazada 3 series etc. they all have lights. The theory is one based on psyche of the human mind; many people think if temp gauge is half way or more up the car is ovr heating and they than do wierd stuff ( add water, call their AA, worse keep going back to the dealership). Simple solution: get rid of it!

    Edit:
    Google : cars without temperature gauges

    You will see many modern cars dont have one.

    You dont really need to worry about temperature gauge. If your car is fine it wont heatup no matter if you have gauge or not, but if your car is overheating you wont be able to cool your car with more than 1 gauge. I have the same model car and drove that for around 30k kms without gauge only relying on light and AC tripping to tell whether my car was overheating or not, It never overheated and travelled many kms in severe heat including a trip to karachi in mid june. But now since last 4-5k kms I have OBD II connector and monitor real time temperatures with torque app, and now my car overheats and I can do nothing other than to park my car open radiator cap and refill the water.

    Its basically dumbing down of the masses and cheap production.

    I have driven and drive a car that actually has a live temperature gauge - its 100C mark is 3/4 of the gauge and it will get there if you are stuck in traffic. It comes down to 82C when I am cruising the highway. The reason manufacturers got rid of it is actually because of user demand.

    the cars without such gauges are meant for a special type of people. These special type of people dont care about the engine, all they want to know is "petrol kitna hai" aur speed kitni hai - if they did not have a speedometer they would get speeding tickets and if they ran out of petrol they would need expensive tows.

    The gauge light system for engine temperature is very very old - ancient american cars came with them, they did not have a cold light only a red light for "engine overheated" - old engines were all cast iron heavy behemoths with poor efficiency hence they could take a beating and a half and still work - the other factor was that such engines regularly faced "freshing up" services every now and then which involved removing the heads, decoking them and lapping the valves - which naturally meant that the headgasket was replaced with a new item.

    I hate cars with such vital information missing from the driver's view. Infact I dont like that my W210 mercedes does not have the oil pressure gauge like my W124 had. Its a good instrument to have for view.
