We have a new 2006 XC90 - 1600 miles. Having driven at night a few times, we have noticed that the panel around the airconditiioning controls gets very warm. Seems to cool a bit when the instrument lights are dimmed. Have others noticed the panel being pretty warm with the lights turned all the way up? Just wondering whether I need to take back to the dealer.<p>thanks to all. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Try placing something in slot above that, it really gets hot in there. <br>I think its normal, the last one had it too.

I had the MD-player in my previous MY03 T6, but that was not available any longer, so I have the slot in the dash. I made the misstake to put my cellphone in the slot. OMG it was hot when I picked it out!

I've noticed that too, especially since I keep the lights turned all the way up also. Nothing to worry about, just another Volvo quirk.
