If you have suffered heated seat failure, please post in this thread just your user name, year & type of car and type of failure. These will be added to the list and your post deleted. If you wish to make any further comments, please post them in the original thread which can be found HERE
Just look at the length of this list, it should be a major issue, both safety and PR
for MB, don't they care about things like this and what it does for their build quality image and return customers. I think we should also flag this up in the motoring press and see what response we get.
I have added people who were on the early part of this thread, if you don't want your name including the letter I am going to write to CEO MB can you remove it. I will give the thread another week before I write. Please check I have got you on the list.Thanks
