Q. My wife tells me that after driving her 2010 Kia Optima, when she takes the key out of the ignition, it’s often hot to the touch. The car is still under warranty and only has 29,000 on it, is this a problem?

A. I have checked Kia’s website and there are no technical service bulletins that describe this problem. Checking online, this does come up in Kia forums as an issue. I suspect the issue is from heat transfer between the ignition switch and the ignition lock. At this point, I would ask the dealer to at least address the issue so you will have documentation if the ignition fails outside of the warranty.
