My ML55 started giving me hot spots on the driver's side heated seat. I was told the entire filament needs to be replaced...at a cost of about $1200.

Anyone have this issue? I mean certain spots on the seat get so hot, I swear it would burn if I left it on!

This is scary, my wife uses the heated seats all the time in cold weather. I've never had any problems with my heated seats, but do you thank this is caused by people keeping it turned on high all of the time? Mine will stay on high (two lights) for awhile and go to the lower level (one light) automatically, but you can keep switching back to high indefinitely. Or is this something else like an electrical short or faulty wiring? From the picture you could easily get a 3rd degree burn from this seat.
