This weekend is 30 degrees colder than the end of the week. Then I get in the Outback and remember “Heated seats!”

  1. Toasty tush is the best car option ever.

  2. Heated seats are a necessity here in MN. Won’t go without it or without remote start.

  3. Dave Slusher says:

    I grew up in NW Kansas, and we had block heaters and kept big sheets of cardboard on our windshields. We didn’t have fancy things like heated seats or remote starters back then. I wish we did.

    1. Amen to that. I had a diesel VW Rabbit that I literally would thaw out by lighting a charcoal fire in a pie plate and then slide the coals under the engine because I couldn’t plug it in. On the farm I lived on in high school, we plugged 10 vehicles in every night. Much happier with the modern solutions.
