2006 VUE Red Line
Default 2006 RedLine Vue - no heated seats...

As some of the forum posts have already indicated, the 2006 RedLine leather and (fake) suede seats are NOT heated...the switches on the console that are where the heated seat switches are on the leather and comfort package - are just for the 'ambient' footwell lighting...they look a lot like the seat heater switches...

My dealer didn't know this either...

Seems a little 'small white starchy grain'-ish to me.

I just hope they didn't nix the heated option so they could put those lights in there. I think I've heard that it's something to do with Suede and bleeding dye..but I'm not sold on that explanation either

2007 VUE Red Line
Default Re: 2006 RedLine Vue - no heated seats...

which would have been a nice reason to make the suede the "cloth" choice, and also offer a "leather" choice with heated seats for an added fee.

It's still an uplevel package, and you would have more than one interior choice.

Maybe next year they'll think about doing something better (or worse).

I'm still wanting to get the ambient foot well lighting. at the very least, the switches.

Fake suede?? What exactly is it then? Sure looks like suede to me.

The reason there are no heated seats on the 06 RL VUE:

The seats were redesigned for the RL VUE (notice that they're more comfortable now?), but this caused some problems for all the wiring and everything else that's included for the passenger-sensor for the airbag, the power seat controls, everything else that is built into those seats. In order to get the RL VUE out in a timely manner, they nixed the heated seats. They may return in the future when they have time to work out the kinks.
