    I've noticed my ventalitaed seats don't seem to cool down as expected. Doesn't seem like it's turning on, or cooling enough. Today it was about 91 degrees outside, back & butt was still hot with cooling on high. I placed my hand on the seats, couldn't tell if it was blowing cool air. Anyone else notice this issue? Thanks

    I had the seat fan on high yesterday and seemed to be comfortable. Definitely feel the air coming up through the leather. I don't think this is conditioned air, just air in the cabin, so your cabin temp will have a lot to do with the coolness of the seats.

    Put A/C on, but only to your feet. The seat fan will suck up the cold air.

    Thanks all - didn't know about the seats using cabin air. After turning on the floor vents i could notice cooler air from the seats.

    Noticed the same thing, had to turn the radio off to listen for the fans to be sure they were on.

    I've had similar cooled seats in my Ram for over 5 years. What I've noticed is that the effect of the cooled seats is much more significant if you have been sitting in the seat for 5 minutes or more (before you turn on the cooled seat). If you turn them on as soon as you get in the car, you don't really notice it. But if you are hot, or the seats are hot, and you've been sitting in them for 5 minutes or more, the effect is almost immediate. This seems to be holding true in the Hellcat as well.

    I think the cats lost the true air conditioned seats in place of ventilated seats due to the inter coolers and engine mods on the cat, whereas the SRTs have A/C cup holders and seats. Maybe the future cats will have these upgrades available along with the adaptive cruise.
