Yes I see this as well on my 03. They take a while before you can feel anything and even then they never really get very warm at all. In contrast to my 11 Subaru's seat heaters they really suck.

Agree with most of your post except the claims that better mileage occurs with 91 octane. 87, 89, 91 won't make a measurable difference in MPG but it will make a measurable difference in power. ...
