ventilated seats

So I know that you can order ventilated seats on the limiteds. how do those of you that have them feel they work? Will they loose effectiveness because the perforations in the seat get dirt in, is there an easy way to clean it out (obviously a vacuum would work, but any other methods?).

Never had before. Was not sure of the effectiveness but was part of the luxury group. Now that I have it, don't think I would do without.

I think I read that the ventilated seats will be available in the 2015 TH as an option.

That's the reason I asked. So how well do they work? Turning them on in a grand cherokee on the dealer lot didn't seem to do a whole lot. Granted I didn't give them much time to work.

Yea, they take a few minutes to feel an effect, but they do work nicely.

Ventilated seats are the main reason I purchased the Limited, and I'm very happy I have them. They are interesting in that they are not a strong blast of cold air, but instead almost suck the heat away from your body, and cool it at the same time. Subtle but highly effective! I do not use them every time I run the AC, but since purchasing my Cherokee in March, I've had the drivers side on at least a dozen times. Good question about clogging the holes- I think I'll purchase a handheld vacuum and use it on the seats at least once a week.

Definitely an option on the 2015 Trailhawk, however I haven't seen any information on pricing.

I didn't get them- I've dealt with hot leather for the past few years- didn't seem worth the extra waiting (for a 2015 TH, no intentions of purchasing a Limited) or the extra cash to me.
