I wanted to call in and share, but will post here instead.
I do enjoy the seat warmers, but could probably buy a car without them too. My husband really gets a kick out of the seat warmers. I think that I probably turn it down or off before he does. It does get the buns toasty.
However, the most amusement that we get out of the seat warmers is in the summer. A couple years ago, the air conditioner wasn’t working in my car. It wasn’t pleasant. But, why not own a situation and potentially make it worse? I turned my husbands’ seat warmer on when he wasn’t looking. We’ve been waging war on each other ever since. The air conditioner has since been fixed, but its still a fun game to play occasionally.
My father in law’s truck has a seat cooler in it. My husband had the opportunity to try that out. If we happen to buy a vehicle with either option in it, that’s fine. I probably wouldn’t make a point to get one. I don’t think that the lack of the seat gadgets would be a deal breaker for hubby either.
