Set at high, then when it turns off, turn the switch off and then turn it to low. Works every time, thereafter - except not on high.

2011. Heats up quickly and stays warm for a period of time then cycles low for a bit then back to toasty. Does this for as long as I drive.

I have a 2013 OB Limited and the seats seem to take forever to heat up. (it takes a matter of minutes instead of seconds) Does anyone else have this problem with a 2013 with leather seats?
