I have a 2018 Elantra SE with the 2.0L L4 DOHC 16 Valve engine.

So far, I have driven just under 30,000 trouble free miles (about 47,000 Km).

In general, I have found that the engine takes a little longer to get to the "normal" operating temperature compared to other vehicles I have owned. My previous vehicle was a 2010 Elantra.

For example, one night the temperature dipped to minus nine Degrees C (16 degrees F)and it took about 10 minutes of driving on the highway before the needle on temperature gauge reached the "normal" operating temperature. Of course, it also took some time before the cabin heater started blowing hot air.

My previous (2010) Elantra did not have a temperature gauge but I could always tell how warm the engine was by how "stiff" the engine felt and how warm the air was from the heater.

Am I the only one that has noticed this?

If anyone else has experienced this, is there a fix?

Any comments on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
