    Exclamation Prado's "HOT" radio

    I have a 2006 Prado and noticed that the front (dash-board) of the built in radio/cd seems to get hot while driving. My concern is that the interior of the vehicle might catch fire! Does anyone share this problem or know what causes it?

    How hot does it get ? Can you still touch it ?

    Never heard of this before. Heat must go a long way before it ignites something out of it's own. The radio will melt first before it goes up in flames.

    Everything is a hammer.
    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Question Prado Radio

    I also have a 2006 VX. Never had such a problem with the radio. Never felt any heat coming from the dash.

    I have a 2007 Prado VX and have never noticed this, even on long trips.
