Heated steering wheel

Got a 2018 fully loaded qashqai in the summer for my daughter.
Cold weather sets in and the heated steering wheel is barely warm even after ten minutes.
The dealer said there was a problem and the steering wheel was replaced.
Nothing has changed. I measured the temperature of the wheel and it was 22 degrees Celsius (72 degrees Fahrenheit). My wives car reads 33 degrees Celsius (91 degrees Fahrenheit)
We checked out two other qashqai at a dealership and found they also lacked heat.
Anyone else have a problem with the steering wheel heat?

Hi, I have the same problem on my 2017 SL, I have the impression that is not heating, it takes more than 10 minutes before you feel some heat. The seats are presenting the same issue. I spoke with the dealer and they told me that is normal because is leather......LOL

Hi, we have the same problem with our new 2018 Qashqui SL Platinum. The steering wheel doesn't heat up and just become slightly warm.
I have it checked by the dealership. They compared it with another Qashqui and found the heating level was almost the same. They told me it might be a systematic design issue. I called Nissan and opened a complain case. Nissan asked me to wait a couple of months then take it again to the dealership, a silly answer to our complaint.
I took the car to the dealership again after 2 months and they told me the same thing as last time.
I'm still in back and forth with Nissan. If this is a typical issue, Nissan is making a false advertisement regarding to this feature.

I have a 2018.5 qashqai with same problem. Steering wheel partially heats up but not in the area where I usually place my hands. Been to 2 Nissan dealers and one checked it out and said it was functioning properly and the other offered to look at it but told me if I had bought a Rogue or Murano I would get a better heated wheel. So there you go! Mine is a top of line SL Platinum. Heated seats work fine but if you want to warm your hands you had better wear your gloves!
