No Heated Steering Wheel!

While I have a GC LTD with remote start and heated seats, I have no heated steering wheel. So to paraphrase the old saying "I cried for not having shoes till I saw a man with no legs"? ... I cried because I had no heated steering wheel, until I met a Jeep GC owner with no heated seats!

Re: No Heated Steering Wheel!

I never even heard of a heated steering wheel until about a year ago when I was shopping for my wife's car. It then became a "must have" and we refused to look at vehicles without it.

Re: No Heated Steering Wheel!

I was talking to a guy at work today and he knows a guy with a Mercedes with a heated gearshift/knob. Can't remember what type of Mercedes or if he said. First I've heard of it.

I think BMW was doing that on the 5s awhile ago. My wife has a heated steering wheel on her 328 and I like it. (My Limited doesn't have one) Personally I'd like a heated windshield. Or at a minimum, the wiper rest area (my Ridgeline had that).

Re: No Heated Steering Wheel!

You can get heated and cooled cup holders on the Chrysler 300. The hot is not just warm either, it gets hot.

Re: No Heated Steering Wheel!

I had a 1989 Mercury Sable with a heated windshield that had a gold tint when viewed from the outside. It worked great for a few winters and then stopped working. There was a problem with the connection to the windshield and after numerous freeze/thaws, the connector points broke.

It was also almost impossible to find the same replacement windshield if it cracked or was broken.

No wonder they don't offer that option anymore!
