They aren't the hottest, and a 2 stage button would have been nice, but I find it convenient that they auto on/off and they get the job done. Mine warm up pretty fast. Within a minute I can already start feeling it.

Mine work exactly as they should. By that I mean that they don't. Because I don't have them. Because my butt is warm enough. :kooky:

My folks have a ford fusion with a 2 level heated seat option and wow you can't leave those things on for very long at all or your butt will sweat.

opinions?
They are really a$$ warmers not heaters. I was surprised they only have one setting (on).

My old Chrysler 300 has a high/low setting. No one is allowed to fart on the high setting lest it ignite. A little too aggressive in my opinion.

I'm tired of shows about vampires. I want to see killer umpires!

I miss the heated seats in my Jag. There were three settings (low-med-hi) and it would keep the seat warmers adjusted accordingly. Oh, and it had a heated wheel, too!

My Mustang has none of these things.

With the price of a Jag I'm not sure why the seats don't do other things to your butt besides heat it.

My drivers side just died one day,light would come on but it did not heat up,nada,no way,no how!
Took it to the dealer and they replaced some underseat relays and suddenly it was working again.
At best they are very medicor,essentially they "take the bite out of a cold seat,and hardly at that!
Don't quite understand why the light stays on either,I mean the heat seems to subside but the light still stays on,glowing!

I used mine last night as it finally has cooled down here at night here in the desert. They worked fine and warmed up quickly. I had to shut mine off after about five minutes but my wife kept hers on much longer. She has more in the back to warm up.

My heated seats suck, I can hardly tell they are working at all, when they do heat up, still never really sure they are working. Took it to the dealer, and they told me ya not very warm, but nothing wrong with them

when I was at the dealer tried another new GT premium in the lot, and it's heated seats were a tiny bit better than mine, but still not very warm at all.

My but warms the seat up faster than the heaters :?:

I bought the premium interior, and there is nothing premium about it.
Cheep, cheep, cheep. Heated seats don't work, seat does not return to the origional position when you fold the bacck foward, and have already had the drivers back cover replaced.

+1, they work but not so great - they fit the crude nature of the car.

mine didn't work at all, the dealer said they were fine. now they work a little, just enough to take the edge off. I've had heated seats before and these are a disappointment.

Seat Heaters are definitely not very impressive. Just barely get any heat & that takes 10 minutes. Far inferior to the heated & cooled seats on my 2011 Explorer.

This time of year I drive my G35x with great heated leather seats most of the time but I would rather sit on the Mustang cloth seats. Much better than waiting for the cold leather to heat up.

Mine work fine - hit the button and the leather warms up nicely. I turn the heater off though and don't know how long it would stay on because it gets too warm for me.

I really like my wife's Lincoln seats. Three levels for heating - and three levels for cooling in the summer. Very nice.

I find them sufficient. If they were any hotter I would want them to have two-mode at least. But they aint gots it.
