Heated seats

"]How are your heated seats,
Mine turn on take 5 or so minutes to heat up, stay on for little bit, then turns off and starts process all over again. It's not constant. Are yours all the same? I've been in other vehicles, and they were a constant heat or it's too hot where I need to turn it down

American cars always have these thermo and/or time regulated "safety seats" so, you don't burn your ***. Most Japanese and German cars ***-ume you can figure out how hot you want your *** and use rheostatic control.

That said, they work fine for me.

Mine takes maybe two minutes to burn the s*** out of my back even with a shirt and hoodie on. It stays that warm for as long as I leave it on as well.

+1 mine get warm within 3 minutes and stay on until I can't take it anymore. But I have only used them 2 or 3 times.

Same with me takes about 2 minutes to heat up and I turn it off after 5, but I keep my passengers for my gf since she's always cold

Sounds about right. The '07 I had the warmer was rather weak but eventually effective. My '10 F-150 Lariat has three settings: warm, roast, incinerate. I'm glad it has the butt cooler option, but as everyone learns do not break wind with the cooler fans on.

+2 - they get pretty hot quickly. We have had a cold winter so mine have been used almost every time that I have driven the car. The one setting seems about right to be useful. My Pontiac G8 had three settings - Very Hot, Extremely Hot and Stupid Crazy Hot. The Mustang temp seems about the same as my wife's Jeep, and about the same amount of time to heat up (+/- 2 minutes).
