    Yes! Hands down one of the nicest features I enjoy!

    It feels sooooo nice to grab onto a really "WARM" steering wheel in our cold weather here in NY.

    It's really unfortunate that Cadillac chose to make this seemingly great feature available, but made the benefit so so. I'm referring to the portions of the steering wheel that aren't heated due to wood trim. I understand this was remedied in MY 2013, but I find myself getting less than maximum benefit from the heated wheel. Even when not turning, you have to be careful how you grip the wheel when it's very cold. I don't drive with gloves on. SOrry to complain, but this little defect bugs me at times.

    Yes that was my only gripe on my 2012 SRX that the full benefits of a heated wheel was lost unless you kept your hands in certain areas of the steering wheel and it was very evident when one was making turns, your hands would have to grip the still cold wood area. That was one reason Cadillac fixed that situation when their GM engineers came out with the newer design wheel. Still many of us owners liked the look of wood thus the reason why the wood was placed on the inside of the steering wheel.

    Remember GM does not stand for Genius Motors. Anyways, my wood is very dark on my wheel as compared to my wife's wheel. I like it.

    You have the Light Titanium interior quantex? I notice the Light Titanium for '13 gets extra dark wood.
    When you turn your car on, does it return the favour? '14 Cadillac ATS Performance 3.6L AWD in Phantom Grey Metallic and Morello Red Interior -ARRIVED!!

    Actually no. It is ebony. The wood in the sunlight looks nice, but man it is dark. Almost looks like dark plastic. I like it alot though. If it ever gets sunny here I will try to get a picture. My wife has the LT and here wood is lighter.

    Re: Heated Steering Wheel

    My wife love the heated steering wheel. I thought it was a good idea but my opinion when I bought the cars was "take it or leave it". We spent last weekend on a road trip; I drove. When I got back into my daily driver on Monday morning I sure wished I had a heated steering wheel. Love it!

    I thought I would only use the heated steering wheel when it was around 20 degrees or lower out but I now find I use it almost all the time throughout our extended NY cold weather season.

    This is one of the features in the SRX I am looking forward to.

    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?
