Hey all I just picked up my 2021 TB and am absolutely in love but I have notices the front wings above the wheel arches are getting really hot... as in can’t keep my hand on it hot. Has anyone else experienced this?

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new Trailblazer! Can you explain what you mean by "wings" or maybe post a picture of what you're referring to?

Hi and thank you 😊
Sorry I mean the front fenders. The hood stays a reasonable, normal temperature after driving but both front fenders are extremely hot ... especially the right one (passenger side). The temperature gauge stays in the middle so it’s not showing signs of overheating, I checked the oil and coolant levels and caps and they seem to be okay. Not sure if this is something to be concerned about but I have never experienced such heat on a car before so wondering if this is normal for this model. Not sure if this matters but I have the RS FWD.

I'll have to check my fenders for heat next time I drive it. These little turbo engines do run hot and a 3cyl has to work hard to make usable power.

Hi Gareth,

Welcome to the forum. You have a nice looking RS.
Not that it should matter, but do you have a FWD or AWD version? I can say, I do not notice mine getting hot in those areas. What are the conditions where you live? Higher than normal air temps? Is it sitting outside? Are both sides hot? Just trying to see if there is any factors that may apply.

Mine does the exact same thing. It seems far more on the right side of the car than the left (drivers side). How I noticed it. I got caught in the start of a little rain on the way home from work. Not a long drive but enough to get the temperature gauge into the dead center position as you too describe. I thought I might as well dry it off as it was just misty but I didn't want to spot up the windows. I wiped it all down and when I got to that portion of the fenders they absolutely were warm to the touch (not extreme but pretty warm and as you say the hood was not. I jjust figured it was the insulation keeps the hood cooler than the fenders.
