Hehe, thats actually how I first noticed the problem - when I was getting my coffee cup out of the car it was still hot despite being empty! Getting the console out and fixing it myself is not something I'm confident in my ability to do. I'm going to run it by the dealership in the morning.
I can't access the thread on the hot console. Is it still available? If not, can someone please fill me in on the problem. I left some keys in the cup holder today, and they were VERY hot when I took them out.
