 When buying the car notice that the driver seat heater would go off after a short time on the road and would slightly warm up and would not come back on. acts like there is a short some where. the dealer said they would fix it, so i ended up buying the car. after numerous trips to the dealer to fix the problem. they came to a decision to replace the part that is under the drivers seat. (this was after we had to talk to the service manager). this did not fix the problem its doing the same thing. have not took the car back in as of yet because i don't feel like getting the run around again because the service department doesn't know how to troubleshoot a wiring problem. did send in their service satisfaction card with the comments that it did not fix the problem. as of today i have not gotten a response to this card. its been at least a month since mailing the card. *tr
