Re: Heated Seats - How Warm?

I agree with some of the above comments regarding small heated area and not getting hot enough. My WJ Limited had more comfort on a cold morning.

Re: Door indents?

I think this is about the worst design flaw in the WK2. Yes, the door is heavy but I feel the stop positions could have been stronger.

Re: Adaptive Cruise package - get it or skip it?

When I ordered my Limited I had to wait a month for the ACC to become available in production.

Re: WeatherTech Floor Mats

The fit is not as good as I expected. There are areas in the front and rear that they don't cover like Husky Liners do. Other than that they are nice looking mats although they are over priced IMO.
