Mine does the same thing, but usually only when it's hot outside, above 85
or so during normal city driving, stop and go it will do that above about 75
or 80, and during highway driving, it will only get hot if above 100 and I
have quite a load in the car (like moving all my stuff back to college).
Sounds like you have a normal cooling system to me.
