#28 of 44 Heated Seat Brands

From an earlier discussion it seems that the aftermarket heaters work pretty well. Anybody have good or bad experiences with particular brands? I see a whole lot of them out there now.

There are certainly a number of them out there, but I would suggest looking at Check Corporation. This company makes seat specific seat heaters that are OEM grade, if not better. I think there website is "www.seatheater.com"
I have been satisfied with the product, and it really has exceeded my expectations. They're obviously made with high quality components, and the installer had nothing but great things to say about them. I orignally went to another installer who seemd to only care about doing it quickly, and seemed to only want me in and out as quickly as possible. Be just as careful finding an installer, becuase some obviously care a great deal, and others only care about how much they can charge you. If that's all they care about, they're certainly not going to be using anything other than something cheap! I understand that a good majority of the sat heaters are mass produced in China, but I do believe that the Check Corp seat heater is made in USA. I can't remember for sure, so make sure you confirm this.
I hope this helps!

#32 of 44 Good Quality Product and Easy to Install

When I was younger, I didn't really care for seat heaters, but after I purchased a set from heatedseatkits.com, I realized how comfortable they are and it feels great to turn them on when it rains or at night. My girlfriend usually fights to see who turns them on first! The kit I bought was only $120 each which is a very good deal since I have had them for over 4 years now. I will never own another car without seat heaters!
#33 of 44 aftermarket heated seats
Jan 13, 2008 (4:07 pm)
I recently just bought an 07 4-Runner. It has leather w/heated seats that was installed by the dealer not the factory. The leather install looks great and seems to be a good install. But When I bought the vehicle the driver's side heater did not work. I told the dealer to check the passenger side and they said it worked fine,"of course". The passenger side works no where near as good as the driver's side and now it doesn't even turn on. My question is are aftermarket heated seats garbage and/or are they as good as the factory? Now I have to bring it back to the dealer and they send it back to their install company. Is it even worth it?

I like to go with OEM options when possible so they are covered by warranty.
