2014 Mazda CX-5: Not Bringing the Heat

July 10, 2013

2014 Mazda CX-5

Like Donna D., I like me some seat heat. My occasionally sore back (due to a compressed lumbar disc/a workout/a run/old age) appreciates the soothing warmth that a heated seat brings to the back.

Problem is, the 2014 Mazda CX-5's aren't even noticeable unless they're switched on high. The two lower settings might as well not exist, while "high" feels like somewhere between low and medium in most other cars I've driven with three-mode heaters.
