Default 2013 Heated Leather Seats

I am trying to decide if I should order the heated leather seat package with my 2LT. Do these seats have the summer cooling feature as well as the heat or are they heated only? For those of you that have this leather package, is it worth the extra $1315 - Canadian price?

No cooling and 3 levels of heat. Worth every penny to me and my back when it acts up.

Depends on if you want to buy aftermarket units and install them yourself or have them built into the car.

Choices, choices...

They are nice, pretty adjustable with 3 different settings, but no cooling what a shame too because here in Florida Id give up my heated seats to have cooled, it hasnt even dropped below 80 here so far this year, so the seats havent been activated much, still worth it on those cold days, plus they turn on with the remote start as well now.

When having leather seats up here in the north its almost a must to have them heated and the 3 levels of adjustment make it real nice to find just the right setting you want.

I too wished they had cooled seats, had them in my LTZ Avalanche and they were the edit.

Heated seats have worked great here in Michigan. They should be standard equipment in the great county of Canada.
