Love my 2016 RRS but one option I regret not asking for is ventilated seats. Am I being unrealistic in thinking purchasing a set of ventilated seats to replace my current seats plus the relevant coding will make my dreams come true?
Not worth the time and effort. I have it. Pretty weak airflow in my opinion.Love my 2016 RRS but one option I regret not asking for is ventilated seats.

The climate seats are not controlled by the blower for the in car ventilation they are both heated and cooled by a thermal electric device. it is located under the seat it has its own blower motor. The same type of device provides the cooling for the cooler box or refrigerator option. This is why the heating of the seats takes some time, it does not use the tradition heating pad that most others use.The ventilated seats are not as good as my previous Jeep Grand Cherokee, but they certainly work after a few minutes. The key to better airflow is to reduce the flow on the main AC panel. Knock it down to 2 or 3 bars and that will allow more airflow to the seats. When the AC is running full, it seems like the seats simply don't get enough air flow to make a difference.
Bill is correct. The cooled seats work independently of the car's A/C. I had the ventilated seats on the other day without the A/C on (inadvertently) and they cooled quickly with noticeable cold air coming out of them.Interesting. Thanks bill2019. I guess my mind is playing tricks on me...
Take a look under your seat you will see the cooling device it is a small thermal electric device that can cool it heat dependent on how the current flows it works on the peltier principal and it has it own small fan.I was under the impression that the cooling effect was due to an electric fan pulling cool air from the passenger compartment through the seats. Am I understanding this correctly that there is an independent cooling element within the seat?
