The Limited lumbar support is a switch on the left side of the seat.

No, the car does not lock if you don't lock it. As far as the climate control system it's been 15 degrees on the eastern side of pa all week. I'm sure it's colder on the western side.

If you want heat right away then don't use the auto climate control. Just set the temp at High and put the fan on high.

If you put it on automatic you'll have heat in ten miles. Oh and the heated seat is really getting a workout. Not sorry I got that.

Been about 15 in CT this week too. What I like about the automatic climate control is it doesn't blow cold air on you. Waits until it's at least somewhat warm first. Ours gets warm in less than a couple miles.

I disagree. The setting on the thermostat doesn't make it get any warmer any quicker. If there is a larger difference between the setting and actual temperature the blower will go high automatically if the coolant temperature has heat in it. Just like in your house turning up the thermostat does nothing to make it warm up quicker and defeats the automatic process. Set it and forget it.
