anyone else have a unibody which gets hot on the left side only?

If its getting hot on just the one side then I suggest a stuck caliper may be the cause of your hot braking problem.



Seriously though does it matter what the cause is? Its 5 months old so take it back for repair/replacement, dont tell them you haver been using it like that though as they may say further component damage is caused by you using it knowing it gets too hot.,
