The driver heated seat turned on today, but turned itself off during the drive to the dealership and would not turn back on.
I recently had the same problem, which was due to a broken seat temperature sensor. The seat cushion needs to be replaced as the heating element and sensor are integrated - this should be fixed under the warranty.

Finally got the car back from the dealership today after 3 days in the shop! Just past the 5-day return period.

They were able to replace the heated seat mat, seatback fabric, and door trim under warranty. The heated seat works perfectly now. :D

They would not repair a small cut in the trunk seal though, attributing it to "external factors". It probably got cut when removing or reinstalling the cargo cover.

Spent a bunch of time trying to program the Homelink unsuccessfully. The yellow LED flashes as soon as I press any button so have not gotten past the erase all programming stage. Will try again tomorrow.
