upstate said:Is it possible that some thing maybe an exhaust pipe is touching your undercarrage? Mine is cool as the rest of the car. I have a late production 04. No issues. If you put it on a lift maybe the part drops away. Can you get it on a lift that the wheels drive on so the weight is still on the tires? Then get under it and take some pictures around the center tunnel. There has to be something. Maybe a mounting bolt that is near the console? There has to be something different from mine and many others.
jackewells said:My 2004 had the console heat problem and like Bob I was told by the dealer that nothing could be done.
My 2005, however, does not have the problem in the console but sure does in the compartment behind the seats where the top is stored. It is so hot there that anything that can melt, will. :flag
Hi Bob,standby said:Jack & friends of the forum,
Some of you have been very kind in mentioning that your cars don't have the console heat issue without thinking I have lost it, and I appreciate that.
I don't mean to be running this into the ground, but I just wanted you all to see the picture, so you didn't think I was feeling or seeing things. We old people have a tendency to exaggerate.
O" boy, I bet That will stir up a hornets nest.
See, I told you.

I trust what you`re saying if you would be 24, 72 or 87 and you not just saying it, you are showing it too. 132° that`s anything else than normal.
What production number was your car? you can see this on your vin, the last four digits says it. My XLR was the 3355 th build for model year 2004, was build around april/may I would say. Please let me know!

XLR I FL said:Alan:
Why not some insulation under the console in the interior?? Some of that thin reflective stuff just may do the trick and should fit with no problems.

standby said:Just thought I would take a picture of what I've been gripping about for over a year.
Keep in mind that the temperature in the car was 79 F
The temperature outside the car was 82 F.
