Default Overexposure issues with Canon T3

I have a Canon T3 w/18-55 IS and 75-300 EF. Since I have had the camera (approx 30 days), I have had constant overexposure issues. I have tried changing the white balance, shooting mode, ISO, etc...But I still get terribly overexposed pics. Some to the point of complete obliteration of subject matter.

This happens no matter the lighting conditions, even if I am shooting well after sunset.

I have even added a polarizer to no avail.

Any suggestions on how to fix this? Canon offered some, but they were the same things I have mentioned here.

attach a photo with the exif intact. If it's not a setting issue, then the advice is to exchange the camera

Try reverting the camera to the default settings.
