    Has anyone experienced the seat ventilator motors getting very hot when on cool? The ventilation can be felt but the motor or blower in the seat seems to make the seat super hot. Dealer said they couldn't replicate it...I turned it on the passenger side while driving this morning and the seat started out fairly cool. Within 5 minutes of turning on the ventilator (to cool) the middle of the seat is almost hot to the touch. I can replicate it over and over smh. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this? What's the point if it heats up the seat instead of keeping air flow. :annoyed:I will continue to bring it to the dealer, but may need o wait until it ools off here to really "prove" it to them since it is 105 here everyday right now.

    I have not had that with my '19 Limited. Yesterday however, had taken it to the carwash where it sat out in the sun for about 10 mins ~ 87 degrees in the late afternoon while it was being wiped down and when I got in the vehicle did notice the seat back felt warmer than one would expect. I started the vehicle, always have both seats on full ventilation, and after about 2 mins felt it cooling as you would expect. Sure, that is expected when it sits in the work parking lot all day in the elements and I get in it but in the four months I have owned it, thought it felt warmer than it should for the time it sat.

    Keep an eye on it.

    It's been awhile, any update on your ventilated seat concern?

    Not sure why they can't replicate it make an appointment, turn it on before going and have them hot for when you arrive.
