Assuming you are the driver, you might not notice if it were also hot under the front passenger seat? It's hard to tell without more information. It is normal to feel a bit of heat through the floor. Maybe if a heat shield is missing you are feeling more than normal. Or maybe your heater is blowing a lot of hot air under the seat. Stop by sometime and we could take a quick look or you can describe the problem in more detail.
