Do cars not have inbuilt heaters?

Yes they do but sometimes older cars heaters may not be so good and like mine works when it wants to.
If the link doesn't work go to Maplins electronics and type in car heater in the search box it is the 1st 1 to show.
Can anyone vouch for these? Are they really that powerful enough?
Heat added, perfect for my car.

I had one of these in my old car when the heating broke. It made no difference to the temperature and didn't help clear the screen at all; just made an annoying noise. I bought heated seat covers instead which kept the kids happy.

15Amps at 12volts - 180Watts. So as good at keeping you warm as 3 x 60 Watt light-bulbs!

Bought one for my chilly wee car. It takes ages to heat up.

I got 1 and I find it perfect heats up really quickly there are dearer ones but I find this does the trick.
I had to drive an e-reg Nissan Bluebird with a broken radiator for a while. I thought one of these would help.

It didn't at all.

Better off eating some chilli and doing a hot fart.
WHY ? just get you heaters fix ?oO
check out the reviews of these kind of products on amazon etc and you will see why their cheap,no power take ages to warm up and make no real difference when they have done,not voted as this one maybe better but i doubt it.

If you have a renault scenic like me it is nearer £300.00!

absolute rubbish, bought one tried it threw it in the bin, no heat and weak fan. please do not buy.
Problem with these is that the cigar-socket in cars cars is usually limited to 180 watts, so by design you will never get enough heat from one of these.

If you park near a mains socket you'd be much better off with a mains extension lead and a mains-powered fan heater. A ten minute blast from that just before setting off and you car will stay toasty warm inside long enough for the cars own heating system to kick-in.

The heater worked fine it was just stuck in the off position - 2 different garages told me it was between 5-7 hours labour to dismantle and reassemble the dashboard to fix the broken cable. Not really worth doing on a 10 year old Fiat Punto. Coincidentally the cost of repairing the heater (and the failed power-steering a few months later) was exactly what the car was valued at.

Adding £7.99 to my new car budget isn't going to make a BIG difference but it might help!
