Hi all,

I got into my GT Line today, and boy was the steering wheel and gear knob hot!

I had to manoeuvre out of a tight parking space, and changing gear and steering the car was pretty painful!

It had been out in the sun a long while though - may have to invest in one of those silver blanket sheets Halfords sell :)

Hi Wolfie, had the same experience this week with the hot weather. Those metallic parts on steering wheel and gear knob aren't a good combination with the sun! I've looked for shaded areas to park now!

Morning Jason,

you can always go and buy some of those attractive looking granny driving gloves I sometimes see caravan towing drivers wear :lol:

Avoid the metal, change to an automatic! :thumb:

I can’t say I’ve experienced that problem and it’s a lot sunnier and hotter here, same for the Doc and he’s not mentioned it either. I do try and do what most continentals do and that’s find the shady parking spaces but not always possible so the air in the car is too hot and unbreathable but that's the same for most cars.

Don't think it's going to be a long term issue for us in the UK with our weather.

I have had this happen about three times in 5 years with the ds5(it has an identical gear knob) So I wouldn't worry too much.

Mind you, I have seen knitted knob covers you can buy if it worries you.

Personally toughing it out or wearing a glove would be a better look.

Yep learn't over the years how to protect the car and dash from the sun. Have an outer cover over the wind screen that's held by the doors, an inner custom made reflective screen that is held in place by the fold down blinds.
Also I bought 2 mesh window screens from the jungle store that go over the side windows. Pretty cool even with leather seats, yesterday the temp gauge on the car said 45 deg, when we returned from the beach.
