Heated Seats?

This is confusing. We bought a 08 V6limited, should be at the dealers tomorrow. It has leather seats, but dealer said he would have to add the heated seats after it gets here. If you do the build thing on the Toyota site and add leather seats it says it auto comes with heated seats. Guess I will find out for sure on Saturday when we are suppose to do all the paperwork. Has anyone seen leather seats with NO heat?

My leather seats are heated, I'm sure it's an option you can choose to have or not have with leather or not.

While mine has heated seats I noticed when I was shopping that a lot of dealers in the south had leather w/ no heat....................Good Luck.

When I saw leather seat option RAV on the lot, all had the heated option. But I think that is the way the dealers tend to order them. I think the heat portion is a separate option, if you look at the 08 brochure. A good aftermarket installer can install a heated option on leather or non leather seats.

Mine came with heated leather and I love it.

Pro'lly has to do with which geographic marketing zone you're in whether the leather seats come with or without the heaters.

Did you pick up your new Rav yet? Were the seats heated? The dealer in Austin told me that the 2008's did not come with heated leather seats. I plan to buy soon and would like to have them.

Yes, we got it. And it did NOT have the heated seats, but the dealer had them added before we picked it up.

In Canada the leather and heated seats are bundled in the same $2K option. You can't get leather without the heated seats and visa versa.

I've seen a few differences between the US and Canadian models now so I wouldn't be surprised if the options are different in the US. For example I learned all the V6 models in Canada all come with the Tow Prep kit upgrades, and there is no Tow Prep kit option otherwise.

My base Rav has heated seats, something that was negotiated into the deal, I believe a $900 Canadian option, I may be wrong on the cost. Cloth seats, all works nicely, even with my leatherette seat covers.

My dealer said the only option was a third party install if we didn't get the "leather package"
