Hi All,
New to the forum as a member although I've been reading various threads for some time now as well as the JX forum - thanks everyone for contributing.

New 2014 QX60 http://www.infinitiqx60.org/forum/#AWD, Black Obsidian, Graphite interior - fully loaded with the following:

http://www.infinitiqx60.org/forum/#Phttp://www.infinitiqx60.org/forum/#remium
http://www.infinitiqx60.org/forum/#Premium Plus
Technology
Deluxe Touring
Theater
Maple Interior
Tow Hitchhttp://www.infinitiqx60.org/forum/#
Roof Rails
Cross Rails
Stainless Steel Illuminated Kick Plates
Bumper Protector

Loving the car. As soon as we bought it, took a 800 mile road trip - 25.1mpg for the trip.
Used Google maps and downloaded to car via the Infiniti Connection in car. Added a few stops in between - worked seemlessly - and love the overhead birdseye view camera system.

Very pretty! I'm sure you are going to enjoy this car. If you haven't tried the Journey Planner on the Infiniti Owner's Portal, its a pretty good utility to load long trips. The Infiniti Personal Assistant is really nice. Glad to have you aboard and congratulations on your new vehicle choice.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.
We're really enjoying the car - wife and I draw straws to see who gets to use it daily - wife usually ends up taking it since she hauls the kiddies around.

I do have a question if anyone can help answer regarding the heated steering wheel - it seems it turns on for a set amount of time then shuts off.
How do I turn it back on - just toggle the switch - at least that's what I did?

Thanks.

welcome aboard! that profile shot gets me everytime.

Yea thats how you re-engage the heated wheel, just like heated seats it shuts off to keep from getting too hot.

What do yo need a heated wheel for you live in cali ;) NorCal i assume?

@KCQ - you know us Californians call "cold" any temps below 60 - LOL

@QxSixty - Hybrid - yes - dealer had 4, but we decided against it because we didn't expect that much of advantage given our driving habits and the added complexity of the engines - 4 banger supercharger with electric motor.
We test drove both - the hybrid seemed more peppy from the start in city driving, but at freeway speeds and climbing hills, the non-hybrid accelerated and felt stronger - a lot of this is based on multiple test drives and our perceptions - also the 6cylinder just sounded better and more willing.
Also, the hybrids towing capacity 3500 whereas the non-hybrid is 5000
Driving wise - both felt the same - steering wasn't quite floaty, but for a large vehicle tuned as it is for moving people and cargo, it handled ok.

My previous cars were BMWX5 and BMW7 - sold one and traded the other in. We needed more room to schlep around kids, grandparents/nannies.

Here is the information on the heated steering wheel from the owner's manual:

The heated steering wheel system is designed to
operate only when the surface temperature of the
steering wheel is below approximately 68°F
(20°C).
Push the heated steering wheel switch to warm
the steering wheel after the engine starts. The
indicator light will come on.
If the surface temperature of the steering wheel is
below 68°F (20°C), the system will heat the
steering wheel to approximately 86°F (30°C),
then turn off automatically.
Push the switch again to turn the heated steering
wheel off manually. The indicator light will go off.
