Heated seats

Post by musher » Fri Nov 08, 2019 3:52 pm

My apologies if this topic has been covered before.
I find that my heated seats both drivers and passengers don't seem to get that particular hot and if anything barely warm especially when I compare them to my wife's basic Ford Focus and my neighbour's Audi which get really hot so much so I have to turn them down.
Anybody else finding this or is it just me!!

I don't use the heating function but my passengers usually turn them down to 2 or 1 after 10 or so minutes. Front and back. I can take a temperature readout from the surface of the chairs when on level 3 if you have an ir thermometer and we can compare.

As per Oby. Level three is too hot for me and the family after a few minutes. Level one a bit low. Level two just right, like Goldilocks!

I have leather seats. I think the equipment is just a heat pad under the leather cover? Don’t know why your car would differ significantly from the rest of us. Only a technician can help but you may have to persevere and not get fobbed off.

Best way....... most dealer demonstrators have the core extras like heated seats. So sit with the technician and compare the two side by side. Your car and the demonstrator.

Hope this helps by comparison?

All the best, Arianne

My rejected r-dynamic s seats were ok, but the new HSE seats don’t even get warm or cool.

Well if they don’t fix them, perhaps you will be starting the second rejection

If you have got heated and cooled seats the heating function is not as good as the heating only option.

I have a new 69 plate R-Dynamic HSE with heat and cool options. Also find the heat function to be not very hot in comparison to my previous Audis and VWs. I think it's just how it is rather than a fault.

Hi, check that the car is not in ECO mode, in ECO mode the seats heat up very slowly/if anything, hope that helps,
