2011 Infiniti M56: More on the Heated Steering Wheel
February 03, 2011
I know this isn't the most important feature on the car, but you know how I get obsessed with all things heated.
I've been spending the entire week in the Infiniti M56. We've had some beautiful warm days in the 70s and some chilly mornings in the 40s and 50s. I've noticed that the steering wheel heat adjusts intensity to the outside temperature.
If it is a warm day and I turn on the steering wheel heat, it only gets lukewarm and eventually shuts itself off. If it's cold out, it gets nice and toasty, fades, gets really warm again, then fades to a lukewarm. It never stays on for my full commute home.
The seat heaters stay consistent throughout my ride.
Some of you mentioned you have heated steering wheels in your cars. Do they behave the same way?
