I have two 2004 V70R's and both have a defective drivers side seat warmer. On my daily driver, it was burning my leg on the left side bolster before shorting out. Luckily my leather did not get burned through like other peoples did. On my other one, it did not make a hole in the leather, but did make a hard spot as if the the material melted underneath.
My local dealership said that this was not a known issue, but from hearing from several others here, it is fairly common.
Can everyone who has experienced a non working seat warmer or burnt leather hole in their R please post here. My hope is that if enough people have dealt with this issue, that it can be addressed by Volvo of America and be repaired under recall.
Thanks a bunch.
