I love the heated seats in my Equinox. I didn’t think that I would like this feature when I first bought the car because I assumed I’d never use them. I’m the person who rarely wears a coat in the winter and have been known to flip on fans in December. However, I discovered that when my back hurts, using the heated seat function makes everything better. I can turn on the heated seats when I start my car and by the time I arrive at school, my back feels 100% better. There was a time not too long ago when I thought about eating lunch in my car in order to take advantage of the heated seats for my aching back even though it was at least 90 degrees outside. I envisioned myself sitting in the car, the heated seats soothing my back while the air conditioning blasted at a nice 60 degrees.
Well, Friday morning, my back started bothering me, so I immediately flipped the button for the heated seats. I stopped at McDonald’s for an English muffin with bacon and iced tea and as I sat in the drive-thru, I wondered why my back wasn’t feeling any better. I accepted my order and began to exit the drive-thru. That’s when I realized that I had turned on the button for the passenger side’s heated seats instead of the driver’s side. It was no wonder that I hadn’t received any relief! Sheepishly, I turned on the heat for my seat and flipped off the other button. Soon, I felt the warmth spreading through my back and I sighed with relief. Although I ended up with only about ten minutes of comfort, it was enough to help!
