Re: Heated seats question

This fix is only for non-ventilated seats.

Regarding ventilated seats, I had my SRT's front heaters replaced and that helped marginally. Brought them up to the Overland temp. Rented a GMC Denali last week with heated and ventilated seats and it's 3 temp range heater was no better. I suspect the ventilation option adds enough of a air gap that the old days of using the heaters for back therapy are over.

My 2014 Overland had heated and ventilated seats. The heated seats worked very well.

I had a 2014 Overland and now a 2015 HA. There is a night and day difference between them. The 2014 was much hotter. Both have ventilated seats.

Yeah, that 's what I'm scared of when I try them for the first time in my 16 HA.

Re: Heated seats question

Don't know if I should have this newest TSB done now or wait til next fall - won't be needing heated seats anytime soon. There might be a couple more TSB's by then.

Yeah, I'm waiting until the 1 year mark when I have to get the oil changed to take care of TSBs, getting new leather center console, etc.
