It's the human condition -- we are especially excited to see that number and pay attention to it, while other numbers we don't quite care about. In my experience, I have noticed that 86F is displayed a lot more than 85F or 87F.

I have definitely noticed that my temperature gauge reads high compared to other cars...I wonder where the sensor is located/ maybe the car being so low is the issue i.e. its reading heat trapped in the engine bay
