2012 Volvo S60: Seat Heater Season Is Back!

October 24, 2011


When the weather gets crisp, you know what that means: It's time for seat heaters. Yay!

I know what you're thinking. "You use them all year long, Donna." And you'd be right. But for those of you who can't stand the thought of a toasty butt in summer, it's time now to start warming those buns.

Our Volvo S60 has three levels of seat heat, all of which, unfortunately, are too subtle for my tastes. On the highest setting they get only lukewarm. And I would prefer if they radiated further up my back. It's not the seat cushions that I enjoy hot as much as the back rest. They are so comforting early in the morning. And they also help you relax on the way home after a long day of desk jockeying.

OK, obligatory seat heater post ends here.
