2014 Mazda CX-5: Seat Heaters Stay On

January 20, 2014

2014 Mazda CX-5

I've been driving our 2014 Mazda CX-5 for past two days. The first time I slid into the CX-5, I set the seat heaters immediately, of course.

For my tastes, they are a bit mild even on the third highest level. But I appreciate that no matter how many times I get in and out of the car, the seat heaters are automatically on. This is especially nice when you stop for gas on a chilly morning.

I like this feature for myself. But I have to remember to turn them off when I know I'm passing the car to another editor. This wouldn't be the case if I owned this car. But I'm wondering what you think.

Do you prefer that the car remembers to keep your seat heaters on, or would you rather set them each time you get into the car.
