Yes, but I don't mind it.. it probably needs to be hot enough to go through a layer of gloves, but not necessarily burn. What annoys me a bit is that it's spotty. It's not the same temp all around...

if the car was already selling as a CPO til year 6.. do you really want to pay extra to get to year 7? In my mind I would expect most issues to shake out by then.
