2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: Now That's a Seat Heater

December 21, 2011

Heh, seems Donna and I are on a seat heater tear.

OK, now this is what I'm talking about. Had our 2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI last night and cranked up the seat heater to the highest setting. Within a short amount of time, I was feeling the need to shed my wool coat, the same one I wore when testing out our Infiniti M56's seat heater, and enjoyed the roasting from the VW's seat. Loved it!

This morning it was particularly chilly and after 10 minutes of driving the seat had warmed up, not at its hottest temp yet but still better than how the M56 did, which was tepid. (I might have to borrow that laser thermometer for official numbers.) And I know no one would cross-shop these two cars but I'm just comparing them since I experienced them back to back. Anyway, props to the Jetta for warming my bones so efficiently.
