The A320 does have its share of problems when OAT is above 95F; the EGT
tends to go overtemp.

I have heard that a lot of the problems with the MD-90 are its new
'improved' Allied-Signal electrical system.  It is putting out severe
over, and under- voltages, which are damaging some of the avionics
units.
