    Well after a week of driving my new SRT, I notice a few issues. Sometimes when changing lanes my left turn signal want stop blinking, it will not manually turn off. So I'm driving miles down the road with my turn signal on and I was finally able to get it to go off by making a full left turn (not a lane change) where the steering column automatically clicks it off. Secondly my heated steering wheel keeps cutting off by itself before it get hot. I have to turn it on about three times before it stays on , and then its not very hot. My seats are also not very hot as well, on the low setting I can't tell if it is on at all. I have a 2015 Durango Citiadel and my steering wheel and heated seats a blistering hot in comparison to my charger. I took it to my dealer and they keep the car for two days and said they found a spike in the voltage of my steering module, so they replace it. That fixed my signal issues but my heated seats are still not very hot and my steering wheel still keeps cutting on first use. The dealer is ordering me a new steering wheel and they a going to test my seats. Has anyone had it issues with their laguna leather seats? I hate to be picky but can only compare it to what I experience from my durango and it pales in comparison.

    To quickly respond, I have had no such problems.
    1. Make sure that you are not clicking the turn signal too hard, or, yes, it thinks you are making a turn. You should be able to flick it for a moment and it will blink three times
    2. I don't think the heated steering wheel is supposed to stay heated. I believe it is supposed to get it warmed (ie from being cold all night) and then shut off.
    3. Seats get plenty hot. If you are wearing a lot of thick clothing and try it out, you're not gonna feel it.

    Thats why you got a warranty,

    I think the cooling seats don't work very well compared to other cars.
    I feel the heated seats are marginal at best but we don't drive in the winter so I don't care so much about the heat.

    The ventilated seats work a crapload better than the ones in my old E63. They were a joke.

    My dealership is going to find out what operating temperatures the seats and steering wheel supposed to be. They said my steering wheel cuts off prematurely so they ordered me another one. I will keep you posted if I find out anything more.

    The dealership ended up replacing my steering wheel and that resolved my issues.
