I generally prefer not to bring posts back from the dead. But I wanted to see if anyone else has seen this. I just noticed the same thing on my 2016.
I've had it for 2 years and never had any issues previously. But just this morning on the way to the office, it was on 1 and it was uncomfortably hot.

As I originally posted back in March, I too have this issue with the driver’s seat. I start it on Level 3, reduce it to Level 1 after a few minutes, and eventually turn it off completely.

I plan to have the dealership check it out when I bring it in for the seat wiring recall repair.

I’ll report back afterward.

That's my plan as well. I have one last wheel that needs to be replaced before my initial warranty period also for the gunmetal paint on the wheel flaking off too.
Trying to cover any nonsense before 30k

Now that the cold weather has returned and I have started using the heated seat again, it still seems to get very hot for the first 5-10 minutes (even in the lowest setting). Unfortunately my warranty is now up so I cannot take the car back in. Guess I just have to deal with it or turn them on for a minute until they get warm and then turn them off.

This almost seems to me to be related to the thermostat or the switch rather than the heating element. I would try and track down a wiring diagram for that circuit and see if you can get determine which one is the issue.

The first time the car was in for this issue the dealer claimed they tested the signals going to the heating elements and everything checked out ok.

The heating element is just a big toaster. It works or if there is a break, it doesn't. It seems to me with your seat getting heat, the element is not the issue. Your seat is not regulating. That to me is handled in the switch and t stat parts.

Thermostat is likely built into the pads. Not likely serviceable.

On a side note, I wish my seat heaters worked on any setting.....
