    Experiencing a lot of cabin heat in a 2005 XRunner. Never used my heater (live in Hawaii) and with the A/C off heat seems to be coming from under the dash. Also note the area in front of the shifter is hot to the touch as well as the transmission console on the passenger side.

    Anyone else have this problem. Thinking of taking it in to the dealer for a look see but warranty has expired.
