    I have never heard of a case where interior of a quality car without manufacturing error would not withstand normal operating/parking temperatures. As for adjusting the car climate suitable for the time I return, I'd rather use remote for jit.

    I think the interior of the car can stand the higher temperatures and I would certainly expect it to. However, I think it’s also fair to say that it will last longer if it doesn’t have to withstand extreme temperatures. I’m not saying that you should expect your interior to fall apart in two years if you don’t turn on the overheat protection, but maybe the interior will look nicer in 10 years than it would have without it turned on.

    My main point, though, was that you should definitely not rely on the overheat protection option to keep the cabin at a safe temperature for pets (or kids).
