  1. They have a memory. Have heated seats on, get out, lock car, walk away, come back to car, get in, and they’re already on!
My car has heated seat memory, as a by-product of using a rocker switch.

My wife's car has heated seats without memory (push-button switch). You have to turn it on each time.

I actually prefer that it doesn't remember the last setting. There have been a few times where I left the passenger seat (or worse - the rear seat) heater on for who knows how many days, because I didn't notice that someone had turned it on the last time I had passengers.

My previous car didn’t have this. Funny, I put an exclamation point but I’m not sure I like this. The car is assuming I still want heated seats on and I may not. Given how fast they warm up I would prefer they weren’t automatically on.

Just a few quick observations on the heated seats.

  1. They get warm fast!
  2. They have a memory. Have heated seats on, get out, lock car, walk away, come back to car, get in, and they’re already on!
I'll add my own, quick observations.
- The symbol looks like BACON!
- I decide how much bacon I want and the more bacon I want means the more warmth!!!
- Therefore BACON = WARMTH!

Forever. Bacon.

I accept your apology and appreciate that you have preempted my need to complain about not being able to un-see the bacon. Although here I am replying anyway. As my bacon cravings go parabolic. :eek:

I used the joke on my wife earlier this week. She got in my car yesterday, picking her up from the airport, and she says "I need bacon" and turns on her seat heater!

It BEGINS!!!!!!

I've heard people turn on your co-pilots heated seat before they figured out why they were getting hot. Then people wised up and would swap the controls so that when you turned someone else's seat, you were actually turning your own seat on.
I'd like to see a software update where you select the bacon button, and it pop's open the glove compartment with sizzling hot bacon inside. ;)
