I keep mine on high... don't really feel air movement what I do feel (or don't feel) is the seat feeling tacky. I live in a humid climate so I feel they do help in controlling/eliminating that tacky feeling.

I have them (2018 Touring) and don't think they are as valuable or as "effective" as the heated seats (I know different functions).

I think the thing to remember is that they are ventilated seats, and not necessarily AC seats. If you don't have your AC on, you don't feel the "cooling" as much as they are just circulating the cabin temp air. They cool the seats down by moving some air through them. But I've sat in properly AC seats in Cadillac for example, and those seats you can REALLY tell that they are on and working.

I use mine similarly to @Fired00d. I keep mine on high all spring and summer. As mentioned, the seats are ventilated, but not cooled by the A/C.

I generally don't think that they do much except keep your butt and back dry instead of sweating, especially on leather seats. On second thought, maybe they do more than I appreciate, i.e., keeping my backside dry.

Don't have them in my 2019 EXL but the wife's Lexus ES300h has them and she uses them all the time. We also rented a late model (2018?) CTS Caddy in Maui a couple of years ago and it definitely came in handy there!

For those of you with ventilated seats, what is your opinion of it? Do you use it?

Looking forward to hearing your perspective and insight.

Thanks in advance.
Mine are on constantly when it gets to about 70° or warmer. Sometimes it takes a while to cool down, but it’s awesome if you remote start - the seats cool down. Love this feature most of all.

They aren't particularly impressive, but I do keep them on all the time in spring/summer. It definitely helps to keep the seat itself from becoming too warm and inducing backside sweat.
As someone who perspires quite a bit, and having black leather, I'm glad to have them, but they could definitely be improved. About 50% more air on high would be nice, as low and medium are useless.

Thanks everyone for your experience.

I actually forgot the car had them and just started using them recently. Initial reaction is I was not impressed. However, I've got to use them a bit more before having a definitive opinion.
