Compare seats with and without ventilation. I found that the ventilated ones have less padding which may or may not override their advantages.

If you have the A/C in the AUTO mode, the A/C will always turn on after car shut down and restart even if you manually turn the A/C off first. If you don't have it in AUTO, it will not.
