    I have AWD MAX with ventilated seat feature, however when I turn it on either LO or HI, I can hear the fan running however, I do not feel any air coming through the seats. I understand that it is just drawing air from cabin and not air conditioned, but it is not blowing air.
    However, Heated seats work fantastically.
    does anyone had the same issue?

    The ventilated front seats have two vented seat motors. One motor is mounted to the seat back frame and the second motor is mounted to the seat bottom pan. You're correct that the fans draw air from the cabin and the air will only be a cold, or warm, as the cabin interior. I don't normally feel the blowing air when wearing jeans and other heavier clothes. I have felt the air when wearing lighter clothes or when the clothes were damp.

    The seats don't blow as hard as say an air hockey table. I can hear the passenger seat fans turn on and off when I toggle via touchscreen. I usually get confirmation the driver seat is working when I forget to turn the ventilation on and the suede makes my back clammy. Then leaning forward allows the ventilation air to blow across my back

    They do not blow hard, and as previously mentioned, unless you are wearing light weight clothing, or you are wet you will not really notice the air....Need an update to the Tazer- Turbo mode for the seat fans lol.
