Great warmth - too much padding - stopped working.
on October 2, 2008
The product definitely does what it says, but I'm undecided if I am going to keep it. Although, for $20 I may as well. I just started using it in my 2002 Subaru Outback Sport. It does heat up quickly and keeps you toasty, but the padding is a bit too thick for me. It sat me up much higher and further forward than I am used to. You will most likely have to do some maneuvering of your seat settings to get back to your preferred seating height.
Unfortunately it looks like all the seat heaters out there have a fair amount of padding, which I imagine is necessary to have for the heating element. I realize it is a "universal fit", but the top portion does bow forward away from the back of my bucket seat with the two straps around the back. Hopefully this will mold itself to fit better over time. Not crazy about the fit & padding, but it keeps you comfortably warm which is better than nothing! If we could choose half stars, I'd give it 3 1/2 stars.
I was really loving my seat warmer, and then yesterday it stopped working! No more heat. Unfortunately, I am past my Amazon return window. But it does have a 90 day limited warranty, so I emailed Wagan to see what they could do. I will update if I get a response.
I received a quick response from Wagan with a RA# to return for a replacement. They also said there is a 1 year warranty on this item when the Amazon product page said it was only 90 days. It will take 3 weeks or so to process, so hopefully I will have my replacement before it gets too cold. Good customer service though!
