Not sure where you are based, weather-wise, but this morning the precondition brought the temp up to 19C...ready for my son to drive it (!). It was -13C overnight here where we are in Quebec. I had wondered too if it brought it up to what you last set it at, but I guess not....as I tend to keep the car around 17-18C.
Has anyone, in a colder climate this time of year, found that the car starts off warm but sometimes cools down after a while? Noticed this over the weekend when coming home late at night. Had preconditioned so nice and toasty when we got it, but then gradually as we got closer to home (about 45km away), the inside cabin temp was dropping, I felt.
