If they can afford the luxury, they can afford the medical insurance for their indulgence. I think of it as a added bells and whistles luxury, keep up with the Jones’ option. If you have a working heater or A/C it may take you a few minutes longer to feel the effects. I agree with BadBoyVibes you don’t miss what you never wanted or felt you needed. And to answer your question BadBoy, I’m a woman who doesn’t get it ether.

Answer #3

I won’t stop using the heated seats in my parents vehicles. They keep my butt warm when it’s cold, or when my back is out of line I sit in the truck with the heat warmers turned on. It helps with the pain. :)

Answer #4

Heated seats are the BOMB! I have them in my Escalade, and have had them in other vehicles as well. They have all had leather seats. Now the rage is heated and cooled seating! Maybe when I make enough to upgrade to a new Escalalde I will get to enjoy that feature. As far as the EAI, Erythema ab igne, also known as toasted skin syndrome, It might if you the exposure is too long. But If your rear is really that cold I dont think it would:)
