RUNS WARM

Dodge Dakota

I just purchased a 2000 dodge dakota 4x4 quad cab. The truck is in perfect condition and has been well maintained. I bought it from the orgianal owner and he had the dealer check out the truck for the same reason as I am here. The truck runs about 210 degrees while driving and will get as high as 230 when sitting in traffic. The dealer says they can find nothing wrong. They have replaced the theromstate, flushed the radiator, checked the hoses etc. I am just not comfortable with this truck running that warm all the time. What other options do I have?
