I was sad that my "13 Phantom is not even available with ventilated seats, but then I just remind myself how poor they were in my last 5+ BMWs and the RR Ghost!
My Lexus GS had "ventilated" seats. They just worked well when the car was garaged and not in the sun and blew the cold A/C'ed air from the ducts under the seat through the perforations. If the car was parked in the sun they wouldn't effectively cool the air in the seat. Lincoln, Ford, and Cadillac are the only cars that had the true COOLED seats that you could feel working almost immediately.
