Thanks for the input - that will work for the first few minutes, but I need a long term fix for while I'm driving. The AC doesn't quite go where it's needed! Those air conditioned seats on the Expedition sound great, but I don't think a retrofit can be done. I've seen a beaded pad in some taxis, but I don't have any direct feedback on how good(comfortable) they are. Any thoughts?mmsimpson said:Wear pants. Seriously. Shorts are lame on leather. I stick to jeans and capris and long bermuda's and I am fine in leather. I know hot - I am in Phoenix! Also, Autostart is good!! We test drove an Expedition during our process that had AC cooled seats - it was weird.
Yup, the rest of the car is cool, even cold, but I need extra ventilation "where the sun don't shine" to be comfortable. Have you used any sheepskin or similar materials with success?deanne said:I'm in Texas and have the ebony leather. I have not had any heat issues at all, and I don't even have the remote start feature. It sounds like you are still hot after the Acadia has had time to cool off. If so, that sounds unusual.
Thanks! That's exactly the kind of info. I needed. Wish my poor buns luck! :thumb:cathyn said:Sheepskin works great. I had a 'S10 Blazer' (in the 80's) that had sheepskin inserts in the buckets, great during the hot summer months and cold winter months... have not found them sense on any vehicle.
At present I have a G35 Sedan with leather seats - I use a huge, thick beach towel plus a custom made heat shield for
the windshield to block the sun when the car is empty when in use. I put the towel over the seat when I exit and sit
on it when I return if the weather is really hot.
When we get our Acadia (Black/Brick) I will use the beach towels again until I can decide whether to get custom sheepskin
