Not sure you read my entire original post but of course you sound arrogant given the fact that I did use it as a teachable moment and most intelligent owners of vehicles already know this. When was the last time you looked for the exhaust before you reached in to unload your groceries? Ridiculous. Lexus has it figured out and if they want to compete in the market they need to be sensitive to the needs of the consumer. We obviously aren't the only family who has had a child burned. We have the EX. It's a simple fix. I was contacted directly by KIA after reporting the issue and hopefully enough of us will institute change. It's silly to leave a hazard "just because it's not a flaw" when you can improve the next generation. If everyone thought that way we would probably be without airbags, car seats, and backup cameras.I am not trying to sound arrogant and I understand it's concerning, but any exhaust tip (that is a real exhaust tip, connected to your muffler, not a chrome design/cutout ornament in a bumper) will get hot.
When your car is running, your exhaust system takes the hot waste gas from the engine and expels it out the series of tubes bolted to the underside of your vehicle.
From your exhaust manifold, you typically move down to a catalytic converter and through some more "plumbing" before hitting the muffler and then the exhaust tips. These gases are very hot and do cool down from the the initial heat of your manifold to your exhaust tips, it is absolutely normal for your exhaust tips to be hot after the engine was running. Any exhaust tip, on any vehicle will be hot.
I feel really sorry that your little one got burnt. I stood behind my SX now, and no matter how I stood behind it, my leg did not touch the exhaust tip at all, as they are a little slanted. Being a smaller child, I am sure that her position somehow touched the "lip" of the exhaust tip.
On my BMW M5 and 650i the exhaust tips get extremely hot and where way more "exposed" then on the Telluride, again this is not a flaw. If anyone has any type of motorcycle, the exhaust tips are way hotter then on a car after you turn it off.
Here is a quick video on how hot a exhaust gets.
