Out of curiosity, does anyone know the temp of the OEM thermostat on the 3.6L in the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country? I believe the Mopar Part# is 5184570AH and it is a part of the housing. I noticed that full temp not that it's cold is only in the mid 180s, so I'm assuming it has a 180 or 185* stat in it.

Ive had a few of these as rentals recently, and most do as the OP says, though one was always at 200-202... I suspect there is more than one stat...

Only one spec stat for that rig. 203 is almost all Chrysler products these days. If it is an electric fan set like other FWD then that is a huge factor in the displayed temps. Many cars run the fan(s) at low speed all the time if any portion of the Climate Control is on that uses the compressor. Many also have a default setting if a code is stored that will run the fan constantly until cleared...

funny you mention that. My tuner has temp settings for low and high speed operation,so I can adjust when the turn on and off.
