Default cooled seats

Has anyone tried to get cooled saets like in the f150 ? funny how they put in heated saest but not the cooled ones. You would think a summer car would havre the cooled seats .

Thanks for your help guys and gals

I've never sat in a car with cooled seats...what would be the benefit of cooled seats exactly? Heated seats could soothe muscles or something like that.

The weight penalty wouldn't be worth it IMO. If you want luxury car features, buy a luxury car!

I had cooled seats in my Lexus IS350, and I honestly felt like they were a waste of time in that car. You really couldn't feel them unless you were driving in your skivvies or something. If you were wearing jeans, you honestly could not tell they were on, total waste.

I had cooled seats in an older Saab 9-5 and it saved my butt in Alabama in the summer. I'd love to fit something to my '12, since the seats are already perforated.

I was in a supercharged range rover that had them. On the seat and seat backing as well...man they were sweet.

I drove a ls460 for a week and it was AWESOME, but then again, it's a 90k car.

We have them in our Lincoln MKZ - and with our trip to NYC this past week and the record heat (saw 100 degrees more than once on the outside temp in the dash) it was really great to have the cooled seats.

Would be nice in the Mustang convertible - my wife was surprised when I told her that my new one has heated seats but the cooled seats weren't an option.

A lot of Kias and Hyundais are actually coming with them now... they spoiled me on my mom's Jaguar... I do love them esp with the hot florida sun.

We had a MKZ and MKX with cooled seats. At first I thought it was a bit gimmicky but after a few summers I learned to love them.

I've always wondered if Ford thought about them since there is a blank space under the heater switch on both the nav and non-nav setups.

The 2015 Mustang will have heated and cooled seats as an option - may have to trade in for a new car in 2016

Since I made this post, I had driven a 2011 MKZ with the cooled seats...very cool. The salesman made a point that for longer drives on hot days they can reduce the chances of back sweat stained shirts and ****.
