I live in a very hot location and have not had the issue you have with sweating , the center does get warm but not excessive to be hot. I also just point the vents down low to get enough ac across my legs but also these vents are tricky sometime as with direction and if you go to far to one side it will shut off. So just in case make sure your vents are open as I have shut them off by accident especially the one that next to steering wheel.I have an Ultimate AWD and I'm getting a good amount of heat from the center console. I realize there are some heat generating parts in there but it's warm enough that my leg sweats while driving. Does anyone else's get that warm?
