.... the Gen1 units were just too hot.
Speak for yourself
I have both gen1('12) and gen1.1('13) and while they do get very warm(almost hot if you rub your hand quickly around the steering wheel) just before they shut off and then get somewhat cool before it starts over again, I'd much rather have that than lukewarm at best. Note that some with the older Leafs play a game where they manually shut off the wheel heater just about the it's starting to get hot and then manually turn it back on before it gets as cool as it would have if you let it get hot then let it automatically turn back on, this stops the too hot too cold cycle.
I personally don't bother because I'd probably end up forgetting to turn it back on until my hands got cold
and I also don't use my Leaf for longer trips where it starts cycling much. Owners of the older Leafs frequently wished for a medium setting that wouldn't get too hot or too cold but like most of our simple wishes, it falls on deaf ears with Nissan
