This is my second vehicle with heated steering wheel and yes I also would prefer it over heated seats by a long shot. Having both is the best of both worlds but I never really felt the need for the seat warmers. My ex girlfriend hated them and said it feels like you made in your pants. :surprise:My DD has the heated wheel, first time for me (that's what she said). I can tell you the heated wheel is much more valuable to me than heated seats and if I had to pick one or the other, it would be the heated wheel. I don't even use the heated seats any longer.
Good news on the Ridgeline, they can add th heated wheel to your truck if you didn't buy the E or BE. It's an option you can buy.
