    It's worth noting that this car doesn't actually have "cooled" seats. They are simply ventilated. In other words, they take the air from the cabin (whatever temp that is) and blow it up through the perforations. This feature is intended to dry sweat, rain, snow, etc from you clothes, but not necessarily to make you cold.

    If I was shown a photo of the seat bottom and lower 2/3 of the backrest of that driver's seat, I'd say it was from a 2001 Buick Century. It looks overstuffed and unsupportive.

    This is a nine year old car- is it possible that some of the padding in the seats is wearing out? My car is seven years old, and I am fairly certain that my seats are beginning to lose their squish.

    This doesn't really matter at all but boy do these seats look old. Not in terms of wear but in terms of design. From the picture I thought I was looking at a Buick Roadmaster from the early 90's.
