For Martian standards this is actually very good! 8C highs
I'll be generous and give it an F+

Wonder how high it'll actually go, considering it's only springtime where the rover is at. I wonder what the temp would be like if Mars had an atmosphere as thick as Earth's, instead of 1%

Well with all that carbon dioxide, it would be quite warm.. possibly even warmer than Earth

It'd need a thicker atmosphere than Earth to achieve that, considering that it's much further away from the sun. CO2 does not have the heat trapping effects that water vapor has, and most of Earth's atmosphere is water vapor. CO2 makes up a few percentage points of our atmosphere

I'll give it a Z+. It's bone dry and boring, though ridiculously cold at night and comfortable during the hottest days.

If we were to nuke/melt the ice caps, there's enough carbon dioxide locked up there to raise the pressure to around 30 kPa.

I wonder how cold the 1% atmosphere would actually feel though. Imagine you went out with breathing apparatus but otherwise no protection (ignoring the radiation effects for the sake of argument). Would -40 C on Mars feel like -10 C on Earth?
