Seat heater too warm

Seat heater too warm

I am in Colorado and know the meaning of cold weather.

However, even the lowest setting for the front seat warmers is too warm for continuous use.

Has anyone else complained about this? Is there a way to mitigate the lowest temp setting - short of turning it on and off?

If you can go to a SC to test out their demos. Your seats might be malfunctioning.

It's been an issue. Burdogg' behaves the same way too. Mine does too.

maybe a thin seat cushion?

Well kind of - it gets really hot, but then it disappears and I hate it - it cycles and I know it isn't right but they will not fix it. Even though my 3 gets really hot - it STAYS hot the whole time! My S gets hot (2015) but not as hot but at least stays hot. The stupid X gets hot - then shuts off, then will come back on, rinse repeat. Frustrating. I may have to bring it up again now that time has passed, see if anyone will agree with me that this is NOT normal (I know many out there have the same issue, but there are many out there that do not have this issue)

FWIW: Mine seems to work fine. I suspect yours is malfunctioning.

On long drives, I slow cook a pot roast on the passenger seat.

Seriously, though, we never use level 3 for this reason, but find level 1 to be comfortable.

For me, level 3 is unnecessarily hot, level 2 can be a good start, level 1 is comfortable to sit on for long.

wish they have heat level settings for the steering wheel as well.
