    You need to be very careful with these and occasionally a poster will put up a pic of a seat with a burn hole. The ones on our 2008 and 2009 get a bit too hot and need to be shut down. I've tried...

    Did you try a Subaru dealer? The entire car was built by Fuji and there may be contractual language that they take the heat for mechanical recalls.

    Paranoia was well founded regarding the Saabs and they both cost a fortune to fix once they were outside warranty. The 2008 had a 100,000 drive train but sadly as I found out later the 2009 has not...
