Cool seats



My seats are suppose to be cool seats. We were told the seats suck in and cool the seat?? Every other car we have been in with cool seats blows cold area through the mesh area on the seats. Are we being strung along by the dealship who doesn't want to repair them?

Are they Ventilated Seats? Cool seats could mean many things, whereas ventilated means something specific.

a quick google search yields the following result:

"Ventilated Seats or seat ventilation is a feature that is built into the seats and it directs air through the seat unto the occupant for increased comfort especially on long journeys.
Ventilated seats function via several small fans in the seat cushion and backrest. The fans draw air from inside the cabin and into the seat. The air is then goes through plastic ducts, an air permeable fabric and distributes it evenly throughout the seat via perforations in the leather"

We need more information about the car. Model? Year? Do you have the VIN?

Cool seats

This is a 2013 750 long BMW . The book says front seat cool active ventilation three levels . You can hear a fan but no difference on the seat temp on passenger side. Can't hear a fan on driver side?

I've read others complaining about the weak cooling effect on those model years. Sounds like maybe yours have failed though?
