This week the Dallas, Texas area is in the 30s (F) which is generally colder than I prefer. I am also back on my diet, so hopefully more sensitive to cold weather lol.
One of the features of my current Cadillac is front and rear seat heaters. I garage my car overnight, and I have a short commute. So while my Cadillac is not as cold as it might be in the mornings if it were sitting out in the weather, there are only a few minutes during my daily commute for the Cadillac to warm up enough to brace me for a windy parking lot traverse.
That’s where heated seats come in. While the climate control is waiting for the engine to reach operating temperature and provide warmth, the seat heaters are electric and go right to work. By the time I get to work my core is ‘fortified’ for the parking lot slog.
The same would be true for longer commutes of course — faster heat on a cold morning is welcome regardless.
My Cadillac also has a heated steering wheel but I am not as clear yet on that feature — I may have to break down and read the owner’s manual (oh no!).
