With my Ti sport seat on high heat (driver's side, USA spec), I can feel the heat after 1-2 minutes and full heat is reached in another 1-2 minutes. The heat is concentrated at the seat back, near the bottom, although I think there is some heat on the seat pan near the back.Does it take a while before the seats become heated? My wife could hardly feel the heat after 10 minutes. Please advise.
Well, I hope everyone recognizes this as a "first world problem".All this talk about heated seats, heated steering wheels, heated door handles, heated shift paddles, heated seat belts, heated accelerators and brake peddles, heated shift handles and on and on. Good grief! My Giulia's engine warms up very fast and we have nice cozy warm air very fast when needed in the cabin. I've never seen a forum with so many anorexic cold blooded folks. I hate driving a car that feels like I'm sitting on a Coleman camp stove while driving. Next we'll see members here whining that Giulia doesn't have vibrating seats.
Amen.Well, I hope everyone recognizes this as a "first world problem".
A related first world problem with my car is that it seems to adjust the HVAC outlet temperature based on the outside temperature too aggressively with the net result that I have to turn the inside temperature down quite a bit when it is cold outside and back up when it is warm. I thought the whole point of this complicated climate control system was so that there would be no need to fiddle with the controls. IIRC, I ended up at 60F inside temperature setting to avoid feeling very warm when it was -6F outside. I normally set the control close to 70F.
I think the heated steering wheel creates the cold paddles issue. When I first drove the car I had not found the steering wheel heater button and also did not notice the temperature of the paddles: cold fingers, cold paddles, no contrast. Once I tried the steering wheel heater my fingers warmed up quickly and then I noticed that the paddles were cold relative to the steering wheel and my fingers. Also the steering wheel heater seems a bit over the top and I end up turning it off after a few minutes.
My heated seat sometimes burns my butt, and the power seat occasionally goes haywire and pins me against the steering wheel. Whom do I petition?Since I paid to have a heated seat, I would expect it to work properly. By the way, my passenger seat sometimes does not slide backward. I know some here will say, "Don't use it." So, all the people complaining about the Infotainment system, just don't use it.
