Hi, I am very happy with my new 2010 Jetta Sportwagen TDI. Is it common that the key gets very hot in the ignition? When I pull the key out it is sometimes, not always, very hot. I put my finger on the key hole and it is really hot. Is this normal?
Thanks, Minnetrista

I would say no. Definitely bring it to the dealer. Why would the key hole get hot anyways unless there's an overheating wire in there?

I get this as well, but normally it's only noticeable when I have the electronics on without the engine on. My guess is the key actually completes a circuit for the wiring and the electricity going through it warms it up. Unless someone tells me better, I don't think it's a big deal.
