Well getting up to 220 in traffic and at lights is normal and is also when fans kick on. It should go down to 210 then fans kick off. If it is not going down when fans kick on something is not right. Are both fans working?? If so try freshening up your coolant after a good flush plus remove your radiator and spray all the bugs out. You could spray your radiator out while mounted I guess but then all that junk would end up all over your engine. Riding on the highway in hot weather I see 170/180. Never seen 200 before at highway pace. Mine is a 04/06 which is the generation before yours though. But I believe they ran about the same temps. The 09/14 which is the generation after yours runs a bit hotter. The highest I've ever seen is 221 but the fans had just kicked on and it started dropping.
