2014 Toyota Highlander: Cooled Seats Don't Cool

August 12, 2014

2014 Toyota Highlander

It's summer. It's hot, as in 108 degrees hot. You're perspiring profusely as you hop into your sunbaked 2014 Toyota Highlander to go home from work. It's got cooled front seats. That should be a godsend. But it's not.

It's actually been more than 100 degrees each day for more than a week where I live. And each day our Highlander's cooled seats (ventilated would perhaps be a more accurate term) have let me down. Even when set to the maximum "3" setting, it doesn't feel as if they're doing anything at all.

I can hear the seat's ventilating fan(s) running, so I know this feature is supposed to be working. But there's not a whole lot of action happening.
