Thank You!

The day was dark, damp with gusty winds. The kind of day best spent with a book, a cup of something warm, and a cozy comforter. Instead, I needed to take my mother to her dentist.

There are perks in my car that make traveling on dark, damp, and gusty wind days tolerable. My seat heater was set to high, but there was another button pressed that made me smile. Do you know what this button on my steering wheel does?

So, channeling Jimmy Fallon’s thank you notes, I write a thank you post to this button.

Dear Heated Steering Wheel,

Thank you for being there for me when my hands grip the cold surface of the steering wheel. You slowly warm my frozen fingers. Because of you, I follow my driver’s ed teacher’s command to keep hands at ten and two. I admit, sometimes I do use eight and four, just to feel the warmth. My palms soak up your gentle heat. When you are on, my hands never leave the wheel. What a luxury you are! Thank you for keeping my fingers toasty!

If you ever get to experience a heated steering wheel, you will want one in your vehicle too. Trust me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Don’t you have a story to share?

  1. Love the note from your cousin! I’ve never experienced the heated steering wheel, but I have heated seats for the first time and I adore them! My husband detests them. So his side never gets used. Which gets used more? The heated steering wheel or the fan on the dash?

    I donโ€™t have heated anything! Heated steering wheels must only be offered in northern vehicles. My hands are often the only part of me that actually gets cold.

    No way!!! Steering wheel heaters??? I must get out more.
    It feels as if I could use a Winnie the Pooh book of…..lifeโ€™s big helps….for catching oneself up on semi new things……๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ….

  4. This is great! (My husband has a Subaru now – new to him – and it has many neat features like the heated steering wheel. I’m going to need to try it out!)
