Default Who Has the Massaging Seats?

Just wondering how you like it, and if they really work. I've always thought I was a neat feature, but haven't had the chance to try it out.

Only massaging seats I've sat in were in a Mercedes SL500. They were really nice though

I only had massaging seats in my old SC with really stiff suspension.

Had to go down a dirt road to activate it though.

I had a massaging driver's seat for a while, but the wife kept complaining it made her hand fall asleep.......

I have one of the covers that plug in to the cigarette outlet, the heat is great in the winter, as for the massaging, its more of just a vibration on mine and I guess its okay after a long day at work.

I have the multi-contour seats and do like them. I don't use the feature often, but they are very popular with my wife and others who have been in my car. You can either have the back or the bottom massage, just not both at the same time. They really feel good on the body on longer drives. They shut off after 20 minutes but can always be reactivated immediately. I am glad I have them.

Glad to hear that they are actually useful. I know I would probably use them a lot haha.

I had a heated, massaging seat pad in a car once. Was a nice Christmas gift from my mother.

Some medical company made it. Homedco or Homedics I think.

Yes, it is nice to have seats that are heated/cooled and can massage at the same time, not to mention the wide range of adjustments to get the seat comfortable for the user.
