2013 Infiniti JX35: Steering Wheel Heater
January 17, 2013
Our 2013 Infiniti JX35's Climate Controlled front seats and its heated rear seats are part of its optional Deluxe Touring Package, which costs $2,550. But its heated steering wheel is oddly part of the optional $3,100 Technology Package, which also includes Infiniti's very cool Back-Up Collision Intervention (BCI), remote engine start and a laundry list of other worthwhile gadgets that seem right out of The Jetsons.
I haven't used the crossover's heated wheel much, but this past weekend I was feeling a little crazy. And a little chilly. And in need of a little pampering. And a heated steering wheel was just what I needed.
It worked. The Infiniti's wheel heats up quickly and remains properly toasty until you shut it down. The heat is also evenly allocated around the wheel and its spokes, with no annoying hot or cold spots. It's one of the finest heated steering wheels I've ever used, and is just another reason why I'm a fan of spending time in this people mover.
