Default i20 - Dickie Heating Issue

Hey,

Been trying to figure out where to post this for sometime now. Hope this is the correct place.

Basically, I have an i20 1.2 Era that is less than a year old. The problem is that whenever I drive the car with the A/C on for about 20 mins, the car dickie - just above the exhaust gets really hot. I have spoken to the Hyundai service center about this but he says that it is completely normal.
The thing is that my dad, who has owned about 5 different cars before this, noticed it and he says that none of his previous cars had this issue.

Could someone who has an i20 check this out and let me know if it is in fact normal or is a problem with my i20.

Thanks in advance.

Didn't get what you meant.

Never heard of anything like that.

By the way how did you check it?

If I put the A/C on and drive the car for about 20 minutes or so - in the rear dickie, just above the exhaust, when I lift up the floor mat, the inside of the chasis gets really hot.

My dad found the problem when he went to get something out of the dickie after a short drive. Then we checked to make sure it was always happening and it was consistant.

This is not normal at all, & I really think it's a good idea to have the Hyundai service guys rectify the problem to avoid any major disasters.
Please remember, anything other than the engine bay (bonnet) & exhaust getting hot is not normal. Even the front quarter panels do not heat up even when the engine is right there.
The service guys are just being lazy, wake them up & have them take notice at the earliest.

Do you have any ICE installations in the rear?

It is normal for area near the exhaust to become hot, usually manufacturer add heat shields around these area (especially the petrol tank and silencer box). That usually takes care of it to a great extent.

Default Heat shield

I have seen Fords having a heat shield on the body (from below), immediately above the exhaust end can. You can try something like that. Check if it is missing, else add a shield like what the Fords have.

I got an i20 Magna (but haven't heard of Era model on an i20 though). I have noticed it does get warm in the boot after a considerable run but not HOT.

Which is the closest Authorized service station to you?
