You're temp is fine. The reason for a thermostat is to aid in heating up the motor faster. So when the coolant is cooler the thermo is closed allowing the coolant in the block to heat up when it reaches temp the thermo opens and allows it to travel through the radiator. If the coolant only got to 95 degrees the temp the thermo opened at it would constantly be opening and closing. So they design them to open slighly cooler than what the engine should run at. Now the cooling fans are hooked up to another temp sensor and turn on and off to cool the coolant, they really only run in town as there's enough airflow at hwy speed. However when you turn the a/c the fans kick in to cool the condenser in front of the radiator. This also cools the coolant slightly. Bottom line, you're good. Cool toy though isn't it.
