Agree, this doesn't seem to be purely a temperature issue. Certainly, those in warmer climates appear to be most effected.
We do have hot summers here, but the car has rarely, if ever, been charged under high temperature conditions. It is garaged most of the day and all night, and charged in the garage or other shaded environments, usually at night or the early morning. It also never sat at a full charge in triple digit temperature.
If I were the main driver, perhaps the car would be more babied. But more coddling should not be required of mainstream drivers.
