2015 Volvo S60: Persistent Heated Seats, Steering Wheel
March 16, 2015
Last Tuesday night I drove home from a bike ride in our 2015 Volvo S60. When I jumped in the car the temperature was in the low 40s. It was chilly. I activated the heated steering wheel and driver seat.
The next day I got a surprise.
I didn't drive the car until the next afternoon when the temperature had climbed into the high 60s. It was then that I realized that 67 degrees is too warm for a heated seat and steering wheel. Both remained on through the key cycles. I'll let you argue the merits of this feature.
The experience made me remember how much I appreciate our Ram's "Auto-On" feature, which activates the heated or ventilated seats based on ambient temperature.
