    Re: Cold Weather Package

    Your seats and wheel must actually heat up like they should. Some of us, me included, our cold weather package is a joke and it doesn't drop much under 20 here.

    Both heat up very quickly, especially the steering wheel (appreciated even more after scraping the snow/ice off the car and you get back in with frozen hands). No doubt the temperature differential is much more noticeable too with this kind of outside temp.

    We got a nice minus 40 today , that's the only point where both Celsius and Fahrenheit scale are the same
    I guess someone was intelligent enough to say its dam cold no mater which scale you used

    People will complain no matter what
    apart from this car I own 3 others ( Porsche BMW and Ford) with heated seats and 1 more with heated steering wheel
    While the ford seats heats much much faster and hotter ( too much actually) the ATS is on par with the 2 Germans

    Re: Cold Weather Package

    My steering wheel quickly heats up nice and toasty, except on the bottom left side. Anyone else have a cold spot?

    I hope to never see temps like that in my life.

    I agree on the Ford, plus CUE is a piece of cake compared to operating heated seats through MyTouch

    The entire upper and lower arc of the wheel heats up on mine, the only spots that don't are right where the spokes join the rim.

    I find the steering wheel awesome...the seats are ok but not as hot as my wife's 07 Tahoe

    We have -22 this morning with -30 windchill as well. I hear you guys are getting clobbered there!

    Blizzard warnings out for tonight and tomorrow Chris; temps were down to -19* this morning with close to -40 windchill. I am NOT liking this whole winter thing, what happened to global warming?! LOL

    It was renamed "global climate change" for CYA purposes...

    26F here today and its damn cold. Going to put my shoddy heated seats/wheel through its paces tonight. I brace for disappointment.

    Weather forecasters - they supposedly can tell what the weather will be in a hundred years, but can't accurately forecast for next week

    I'm a pessimist at heart myself - always expect the worse and hope for the best... so I'm usually pleasantly surprised with something in-between LOL

    The steering wheel gets very hot quickly. I find it's awesome. The seats could max out 15 degrees warmer but it's not bad

    With these crazy low temps hanging around, I've been Bogarting the ATS and leaving the Ford Edge behind - for that steering wheel alone LOL

    Re: Cold Weather Package

    I seem to have a cold spot on the wheel too, on the upper right portion.

    The wheel heats up incredibly fast but the seats take a bit longer than previous cars....

    I find they get hot enough eventually that I have to lower them to the 1 setting. Probably takes 15 - 20 minutes and by that time the interior is warm and the seats matter less. Just wish they got warmer in the first 5 minutes.
