2011 Infiniti M56 Long-Term Road Test


2011 Infiniti M56: Not Hot Enough

December 20, 2011

Being a native Californian (in addition to being of a tropical people) I HATE the cold. Hate it. And that's why I always need the seat heater on (and wish that my desk chair was equipped with one). So you'll understand why I was disappointed by the heating skills of our 2011 Infiniti M56's seat heaters.

As you can see I turned that sucker on full blast this morning when temps dipped way down to 45 degrees (BRRRRR!) and yet I didn't even start to feel heat until 10 minutes into the commute to work. AND what the Infiniti calls full blast, I call tepid. I kept feeling the seat to make sure it was on. But nope, that was all it got.

I know those who don't like their seat heaters to get too hot will be happy but I just prefer to have the option to crank my heater to scorching.
