I was in the hot seat this summer

Chevy Traverse with heated seats

Since our SUV is just a year and a half old, there are still some gadgets I'm not familiar with or haven't used much. I don't drive, so I get to play with the options and try to figure them out without reading the manual. One day in the summer we were running from one store to another and it was about 95 degrees and very humid. While driving the 30 minutes back from the store I told my husband the A/C wasn't working very well on my side. Since I love A/C and he just tolerates it, he said he was fine and not to worry. But, my butt was hot...seriously, it was like it was on fire. I glanced down at some of the buttons that I don't use often and one was on, and I said, "What is that button for?" and my husband, trying not to laugh said, "You turned on the heated seat option!" No wonder my butt was hot, I was literally in the hot seat. Why they have that option on a southern car I'll never know!

Oh I would love a heated seat. That would make my lower back feel great in any weather. Somedays during the summer, I wore heat patches on my back for muscle tightness.

I can either do the seat or the back or both. Yes you would enjoy it.

Bernie's car has those too. I like that option in the winter time. That's funny. And it can get hot quite quickly too.

My Subaru has the hot seat buttons, and my daughter experienced the same thing a few years ago. She commented on how warm her bottom end was, and then said, "No wonder, the seat warmer's on." I looked down and said, "Oh, so THAT's what those buttons are for!!!" I've always owned older cars that didn't have these gadgets, so what did I know???

{gigglin!} i'd that trouble with the eldest grandson this last july when they came fer a visit. my ol' yukon's got heated seats 'n he'd hit the button. i'm quite fond'f this feature in winter 's those leather seats'r mighty cold 'n that sends the neuropathy into a frenzy.
