DaimlerChrysler is recalling 111,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees due to a fire risk with seat heaters. I never understood the need for seat warmers. Isn’t it just a little overboard?
The automaker said the recall only affects those Grand Cherokee models produced in 2003 and 2004, and would cover just under 111,700 vehicles.
Chrysler announced the recall after learning that the front electric seat heater elements may overheat and possibly result in a fire, the spokesman said.

I too used to believe seet warmers were just vanity options. But, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve discovered a couple benefits that made me a convert. (1) After a full days work in the great outdoors of winter, a 30 minute drive in a heated seat is much better than an appointment with the chiropractor two days later. (2) If you find yourself on a long road trip with an excessively chatty companion, just suggest they try the seat warmer… they’ll be quietly napping in no time.
