Heated Seats Takes 10 Min to START feeling warm

Anyone else think their heated seats take forever to even remotely start to heat up? I have been in BMW and some other brands and theirs are fast. Ours are slow as hell. It's not just one seat, it's all the seats, front and rear. I'm only asking because people are starting to give me sh*t about how slow it is

You will never get these die-hard blue ovals to admit it but the Ford seats are very slow. My D-max equipped truck and my Hummer H2 both had very quick warming seats. My F450 is just as yours is, takes 15 minutes. I have no heated seat experience with the Mopar line.

Mine work great... so good I never leave them on. I havent timed it, but after a few minutes I turn them off, too hot even on LO.

Living in a relatively warm part of the country (Houston area) I've never had heated seats before this truck.

They work fine when its not cold outside - haha

I am currently in Houston, also. It was about 28 degrees when I left for work this morning, and mine heated up just fine. I didn't time it, but I was feeling heat within approximately 5-7 minutes, and had turned them to low by 15 minutes.

Having sat in other vehicles I'd say "YES" that ours are slow in comparison. I find that it's not an issue when I remote start when cold, as they are warming during that time and it's not as big of an issue.

Its so cold out the truck warms up for 10-15 mins before I go anywhere so they are warm when I get in.. my jeep seems to warm up slow, 15-20 mins prob, but the ram 3500s I test drove before I decided to buy my ford warmed up really fast, heated steering wheel was super fast to...

Mine are so slow plus they never get warm at all in my opinion. Ive been in other vehicles where I would start to sweat. Not these seats. Even the A/C are about worthless

Well at least something worked right on the chebbys! My seats in my 05 never worked That was one thing I didn't care for in mine. Seat heaters never worked and were uncomfortable as hell. One thing I did like about the chevy 2500 (or the ones I was in). The seats were nice!
