    I couldn't find anywhere if this can be programmed to come on automatically when remote starting like the heated/ventilated seats. That would be even nicer. Is it possible? Or does it at least remember the previous setting (on or off) when you start the vehicle next time?
    Sorry but the heated wheel can only be activated manually by the driver when the car is running. Only the heated seats will come on if you have selected that option in the settings menu. I find that the heated steering wheels heats up very fast and within a minute or two you already start feeling the heat.

    Thanks!

    That's great if it heats up fast! Good to know.

    Re: Heated Steering Wheel

    I just tried this feature today. Living in the South, I didn't think I would really use a heated steering wheel, but I
    have to say, I like it! I also questioned how much "heat" it would have and would it make a difference. I am
    pleasantly surprised at 1. How fast the steering wheel got hot and 2. How nice and toasty the wheel became. I
    still like the look of the wood on the steering wheel, and kind of miss not having that, but I will definitely use the
    heating feature, even here in Dixie! Where was this wonderful option when I lived in Alaska??

    Re: Heated Steering Wheel

    Yes, I'm a guy who usually is never cold, my heated seat very rarely goes on, and I thought the same would be the case for the heated steering wheel. But I was wrong. I really enjoy it, and it does heat up quickly so it not going on as part of automatic start is not an issue at all.

    Re: Heated Steering Wheel

    I have to admit, this was on the short-list of "must haves" for my new vehicle and one of the reasons I ended up in an SRX. But living in Minnesota, a "cold" winter day is often well below 0F, and I don't drive with gloves on. I'm really looking forward to trying this out in another month or so!

    Ohhh, man. That's good stuff. I'm very impressed how quickly it heats up the wheel without ever becoming uncomfortably warm.

    The heated steering wheel isn't an option I would have purchased. However it was included on our 2012 Premium package. I'll be the first to admit I was wrong about the heated steering wheel as it is now one of my favorite options.

    It's the kind of thing that you can't appreciate until you have it. Then you can't imagine not having it. I've had this since my 2004 X3 and love it.

    My wife is completely jealous! She has remote start and heated seats in her Acadia, but *I* have a heated steering wheel, and she doesn't. :-)

    Of course, she leaves for work before me, so I half expect to be left with her Acadia on the really cold days... we'll see!

    We've had a bunch of -5 and -8*C mornings already. I love this heated wheel!

    This is my first car with the heated wheel and it is great, Not even winter yet just cold enough to want it warmed up. I have issues with both front seats in terms of the heat. Both front seats only start to warm within 10 minutes of turning them on. In my ford explorer they were overly hot within five minutes is this normal in this car

    I am glad you are satisfied with your heated wheel feature, Mark. I am sorry your front seats do not warm up as quick as you would like. I would like the chance to look into this for you. Please contact me via private message so we can further discuss your current concerns.

    Sincerely,
