Heated Seats ('15 Altitude) Question

I complained to the dealership that my new Altitude's heated seats are not very hot, and only a bit warm. You can feel them a bit but not anywhere close to the really hot seats on a '15 Chrysler 200 that I rented. The dealership said that's they way they are on the Altitudes (maybe because of the suede's inserts?).

My question is, is that the way it is or should they be steaming hot like the 200's? You can feel them a bit warm but not real hot.

Thanks for the advice!

Re: Heated Seats ('15 Altitude) Question

My 2014 Grand Cherokee has the same issue. Seats only get warm, but never hot. Previous vehicles, and my wife's current vehicle, all get hot in a short amount of time. I can keep my JGC on high the entire 15 minute ride to work and the seats never get hot. Very disappointing.

My 2014 Summit is the same way. The seats get a bit warm but nothing huge. I never had another vehicle that had heated seats to compare to. It must be just how they are.

Re: Heated Seats ('15 Altitude) Question

My Altitude high setting is almost too hot.
Low setting is just right. Sounds like something is not right.

That's the way the Chrysler 200 felt like. High would make your buns roast.

I have a '14 Summit in the shop for service. It's seats only get warm. The dealership got me a rental and it's a '14 Limited and these seats get hot! Something isn't right with the heated seats in the Grand Cherokees. I had a '12 SRT Grand Cherokee too and the seats only got warm.

Thoughts?

Matt

Re: Heated Seats ('15 Altitude) Question

The heated seats in my '14 Altitude JKU were the same way. Sort of warm, but not overpowering. My old Audi S5 had some that felt like you were going to leave a layer of skin on the seat. It was glorious.
