2010 Volvo XC60: Seat Heater Review

December 23, 2009

I'm not sure why, but when I think of Volvos I think of winter, snow, cold. I guess it's because they're from Sweden (well, now China) and when I think of Sweden I don't really think about beaches and convertibles regardless of that whole bikini team thing.

And that is why I expect Volvos to have the greatest seat heaters. But they don't.

Case in point: The seats heaters in our long-term 2010 Volvo XC60 suck. Even on the highest of their three levels you won't break a sweat on a 75 degree day. And they heat up unevenly, with too much of the sparsely supplied warmth on your butt and thighs and too little on your back.

Disappointing. Maybe the Chinese can fix them.
