The steering wheel heater element only heats the outside perimeter of the steering wheel.
It would be nice if the element were to wrap around the steering wheel so that your fingers would also warm up, and not just the palm of the hand. Especially on mornings with -10 degree C (or colder) weather.
(On the 2018 models at least, not sure of pre-2018)
I normally run my heater with defrost and floor heat, no A/C. I drove someone elses Leaf who had floor and front vents on and they had the front vents pointed at the back of their fingers when on the steering wheel, I'll be darned if it didn't warm the back of my fingers
Of course if you need defrost, this won't work but it does have me rethinking my normal setting for those occasions when I don't need defrost. It was nice having warm fingers and not just the palms
