IMO It's just going to get worse with consumers buying things in beta, or products with the suggestions ("promise") of future updates.For years I have been complaining...manufacturers should force their design engineers to actually have to use their products before they start the assembly lines.
It's just us soft manual drivers who need the extra coddling! :cwl:Ha, ha...love this thread...we have the same problem with ours. At first I thought there was something wrong, then was able to piece together from the owner's manual that it defaults to being "on" based on outdoor temp, with no way to adjust the threshold or turn the option off. It is annoying as it seems to be an "over sight" that could easily have been corrected to give the driver the option. I hope they amend this with a software update, but for now I guess manual transmission owners are stuck with three clicks for the seat button, and one click for the steering wheel every time they fire their jeep up in cold weather.
I live in Las Vegas and currently have a Grand Cherokee. I was surprised and enjoy having the Cold Weather seat heat and steering wheel heat automatically kick in at temperatures below 40°.Sounds like this will work well for us in southern AZ. Not to many days below 40 but when it is, we think it's freezing!
My Grand Cherokee does just that i.e. It shows a splash screen at startup when the seat/steering wheel heat automatically comes on so you can quickly turn them off.IMO It's just going to get worse with consumers buying things in beta, or products with the suggestions ("promise") of future updates.
I know what you mean though, I think they over thought it. They should add an option to disable, set the temp, or maybe have the GUI show a splash screen for a few seconds after starting with quick selects for options to turn off.
