Did any of you notice high temperature in the central glove box?

After a whole day driving, everything in the glove box was extremely hot...

I wonder if this is just a case of this model or maybe one of the heat shields under the car has slipped and the spinning drive shaft is rubbing against it.

Yep, read about this. It's just the exhaust directly under it. You can check the heat shields. I'm taking a trip today, I'll check mine and see how it goes.

what is a central glove box? do you mean the center console storage under the armrest? i have the storage organizer so haven't noticed anything. i'm sure it prob isn't any worse than an interior in the summer heat. do you have one of those temp guns to check the temp?
