2018 works fine and gets shut off after 10 minutes or so

I have a 2021 and sometimes it seems hotter than others. Not sure if its in my head or really like that. If it's really cold out and im driving for a while it seems like it doesn't stay very hot but if I move my hand to a new spot its like the rest of the wheel is much warmer, again maybe all in my head. I think its on par with other FCA vehicles I've had as rentals. Warmer than my GM vehicle. I'd really like to see a high and low heat setting....

My 2021 gets toasty fast. I typically turn it off within 10 min. Same goes for the heated seats. I wish the low setting was a little lower.

My 2020 JLUR gets super hot quick. I have to turn it off after about 5mins.

I have a 2021 JLUR and it does not appear that the steering wheel is getting that warm/hot. In my SRT the damn thing about burns your hands of and you need to actually turn it off. In the JLUR it remains barely warmer than the rest of the interior. Is anyone else having the same problem? I know it is a small thing to complain about, just want to know if my expectations are too high as far as how hot and how long it should stay on for.
Nope. Mine gets plenty hot.

My 2019 JL steering wheel got incredibly hot.
My 2021 JLU steering wheel is nowhere near as hot.

My new 2021 Willys is not nearly as hot as the wife’s 2020 Grand Cherokee. I actually was wondering if it was working properly. Kind of let down in MInnesota winters.

Clearly a change was made on the 21 models.
