Hi All! I have had my CX-50 about four months. I happened to notice recently that both front fenders are VERY hot to the touch after I drive it. They are as hot, maybe even hotter than the hood, and they don't seem to cool off as quickly as the hood does. They remain hot for quite a while. I park in my garage. Has anyone experienced the same thing with their CX50?
Thanks!

It's cause there's no air flow through the front of the car when it's off.

Take a look through the front. Both the upper and lower portion is blocked off by active slats when the car is off. Personally, I think it's kind of dumb that the default state is closed instead of open.

Hi SkyActiv. It's the entire quarter panel, not just the plastic, from the hood down. I do live where it's hot, but it's not the sun or heat. They are hotter than the hood and stay hot longer.
