The drivers seat is crappy when the truck is on remote start. But once the vehicle is moving about 5 min later they warm up nice. Regardless your arse is still cold when you plop down on a leather seat in the winter lol

I heat up my lunch on my seats!

I have driven several different vehicles with butt warmers (mostly Nissan now that I think about it), and I find these to be just as warm if not warmer than those.

1 Bonneville (cloth), 2 Nissan Pathfinders (1 with cloth 1 with leather), 1 Nissan Murano (leather), and 1 Nissan Altima (cloth).

Mine usually warms up in 1 - 2 mins. The steering wheel heats up crazy fast and I have to turn it off lol.

What the heck is going on here?

Half the people on here say their butt is burning off, and the other half think they seat is not working to the point they thing of going to the dealer??

I wish my but was burning off, but I feel the heat, but not like I expected. Almost to the point where I have considered taking it to the dealer.

I wonder if everybodies seats work the same, but the difference in opinion are the eye of the beholder?

Good question and I am wondering the same thing as you.

First off, there are several folks chiming in that have heated seats but not the heated/vented seats. This issue is about the heating ability of the heated/vented seats and not the non-vented seats.

Here is the behavior of my seats. Yesterday morning, 21 degrees outside, remote start. Enter the vehicle seven minutes after the remote start. Driver's heated seat indicator showing two red lights. Heated steering wheel indicator on.

Steering wheel, nice and warm, driver's seat, like sitting on an ice block. After 20 minutes of driving, I feel a bit of warmth on my lower back, nothing on the seat bottom. Another five minutes pass, and I can feel warmth on the seat and it is a little warmer on my back. 15 minutes later I arrive at work and the seats didn't get any warmer.

Using an infrared thermometer, I measured the seats when I got to work, the lower seat back and far back seat cushion indicated a temperature of 94 degrees.

I've also tested the front passenger seat, same behavior as the drivers seat. The two outboard rear seats warm nicely and as expected, on par with other vehicles I own.

So, for the ones that say they get their buts burned off, are your seats the heated/vented seats? Can you measure and post the temperature of your seat and how long it took to get the warmth?

The above post... that's almost exactly my description of what goes on..

How about we attempt to to this... everybody list what type of seat they have (cloth or leather) if they have just heated or both heated and vented, and the truck type, and how their heat works

Maybe we can find a common thing happening here.

Mine:
Leather
Heated and Vented
2013 Dodge Sport
Heat: Not so good
