Heated Steering Wheel Cover News

We’ve heard from a manufacturer who has been developing a heated steering wheel cover and it’s great news:  The prototype is ready and it’s “everything we wanted it to be!”Steering Wheel

We’ll be seeing the prototype later this month, and if all goes well, the product may be available for purchase in time for next fall.  In the meantime, the manufacturer would appreciate some feedback on pricing.  The product is likely to sell initially for $125 to $135 until volume economies can bring the price down. 

  • How do you feel about the $125-$135 price?  Would you consider buying it? 
  • If we could get a discount for our members that brought the cost down to $100, would that make a difference to you?
