    And not to be accused of highjacking... I wish I had cooled seats. Had them in a loaner once and it was wonderful.

    I have a 2011 srx with cooled seats and I would have to say these are the worst ever....some days you can not even feel they are on.
    I have had "cooled seats" in other cars and they were outstanding in hot weather....these I don't even turn on anymore....dealer says they are working great.

    Re: Opinion of cooled seats

    2012 SRX Premium package, 10,000 miles in Georgia heat. I took my SRX back twice disappointed with what I thought was "cooled" seats. Under no condition could I feel any cooling. The second time was just today and I was told they are only "ventilated" not cooled on the SRX. Not really disappointed though. Not really a big deal however, my wife has a 2012, top of the line Kia Optima SX (turbocharged), the seats are "cooled" and even on low, they will amaze. I love my SRX, but this darn Kia has been absolutely fascinating in every measure.

    Thanks for your posts. I have been disappointed with my Caddy and am looking for another brand the next time around. I'm glad to hear about how other brands are performing in comparison to the SRX.

    Hello droldsmobile,

    I am sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the seats in your SRX. I know this is an old post, but if you would like me contact your dealership and look into this concern why your dealership says that they are working fine and you don’t feel anything, I would be more than happy to. I have also documented and passed along your feedback to the correct group. Thank you very much for your time.

    We enjoy the cooled seats to the point of being a deal breaker.

    How are the standard seats (perforated) without the cooling?

    Thanks

    Cooled seats was the one thing I listed in the thread asking what we would like to see in the SRX. The driver's seat in my Hyundai Genesis was cooled and it was great. The ventilated seats are not as good, but living in the California desert as I do, having them is a must. Their benefit really is apparent after driving a vehicle without ventilated seats.

    In my recent search for a new vehicle, not having either cooled or ventilated seats was a deal breaker. For me, spending the extra money to get ventilated seat was worth every dollar.

    I have them in my other car and they work OK, and I would buy them as a stand alone option, but would not pay the cost of a "Premium" to get them.

    Re: Opinion of cooled seats

    Ok, you guys need to realize one thing. The SRX doesn't have "cooled" seats. They are ventilated seats. So whatever your cabin temperature is, that's what temp your seats will vent to.

    Aside from that, I have noticed a big difference from cooled to vented seats. Yes cooled are cool, but it seems to be concentrated on the seat pad mostly (in all three I've sat in). The vented seats are evenly distributed between the seat pad and the seat back (much more of what I prefer).

    Re: Opinion of cooled seats

    I only have heated (not cooled/ventliated) seats, but honestly, I didn't want them.

    I've had rentals with cooled seats, and every time I've used them, it feels gross. Wet and sticky... almost like I've wet myself or something. I don't like it at all...

    Different strokes for different folks, for sure ....

    Re: Opinion of cooled seats

    I have them and they work about the same as my Audi A7. Not much difference. Big mistake I made was applying leather conditioner to the seat and plugging almost every perforation....STOOPID. A pushpin and almost an hour later I think I cleared them. Anyone know how to apply a leather conditioner without plugging the holes.

    Our other car is a Jeep Grand Cherokee overland with heated and cooled seats which we both love and use, only wish my SRX Lux had the cooled seats, have yet to try out the heated seats, hope they are as good as the jeep.
