Heat Related Issue with Center Console Display

Hi all,

I've been seeing an interesting thing happening recently with my '17 Premier. On days when it is hot out or the car has been sitting in the sun all day, and I enter the exceptionally hot cabin to start my car, I am seeing an issue with the center console display.

Basically - the backlight is out and the touch screen does not work. I can faintly see the screen icons and notification popups so the display itself is on/changing - only the touch and backlight do not function. After driving the car for a few minutes and cooling off the cabin, the console suddenly returns to normal working order - the display lights and the touch screen works. It's as if the high cabin temperature is preventing the display from working properly.

I don't recall seeing this issue last summer with the car so I wanted to know if anyone else has experienced it. I do plan to bring the car to the dealer (I took a video of the issue the last time it happened) but just wanted to know if anyone else has seen this.
