On a side note, I wish my seat heaters worked on any setting.....
The dealer already replaced the pad once...

I just noticed this issue on my car this week. Again, like you guys, Iíve had my car for just over a year. I always used setting 1 because i donít like it super hot (unlike my wife who likes to melt). I noticed this week the seat heater seemingly much hotter than normal on setting 1. I have a brake shimmy issue that I need to get looked at so I might bring it in for that too, soon. Maybe this weekend Iíll experiment with the infrared thermometer and compare the two front seats to each other.

I didn't get around to it last weekend, but I'll try this weekend and report back. For now I just run the heater for a few minutes to get it warm then shut it off. Before, I could leave it on for my whole drive to work and it would just be "warm", not "hot" like it seems to be now.

It got down to 7 degrees in Minneapolis this past week, all I can say is that the seat temp felt good to me.

I took my car into the dealership this week and had them check out my concern. Technician reported that seat warmer was working fine. However, the bottom doesn't get nearly as warm as the back. Is that normal? Shouldn't the bottom and back both reach the relatively the same temp?

There is less padding between the heating pad and the seat cover on the seat back compared to the seat bottom, that is why the back feels warmer than the bottom.
