Default New member - temperature issue

Hello everyone, i bought a 2012 sxt charger. My temp gauge and heat are acting weird. My car can warm up for 15 min and temp gauge hardly moves. I drive 20 min to work and it never changes. It blows warm air but not hot. When i get to work park car leave it runnin temp guage then goes up to midway point. The dash reads temp for coolant 156 degree. Weird. Im not sure of issue. Any help would be nice. Thankyou.

Not any harder than any other car. Need to know what engine you have, or search on you tube for videos.
