I hate it when my car is parked out in the sun for a long time and then when I drive it again the shift knob is hot as hell. What do you guys do to keep it from getting really hot?

I use three methods all at once.

1. Use the sun-shade.
2. Use an old pipe glove to cover the knob.
3. Open the window a crack and sunroof as well on the vent position

And it still gets hot! Well, I have a large 2 pound metal shifter knob, so I guess it just heats up and retains it moreso than normal....

I also park in the shade when I can!

be a man get the shift pattern burnt in your hand.

j/k

A sock works, a different shift knob, the knob sock.
Also window tinting works well the ceramic tint I believe it is can reduce a lot of the heat.

I don't think you should leave the sunroof cracked since the sun shade isn't blocking the sun from shining directly DOWN into your car :eek:hnoes:

I open it enough to vent out hot air, and the sliding moon roof section is still closed almost all the way -- just enough for air to let out... :thumb:
