I know that it is new on the 2018 but Sparke is saying that it can be set in the menu on 2017's for pre-conditioning and I can't find any reference in the manual.

No, his post referred to the heated seats. I can confirm that the 2017 manual does mention how to enable the heated seats during preconditioning and that my 2017 does indeed turn them on when I precondition it.

It would have been useful that you mention that you have the PDF version - I wouldn't have spent the time searching for the info for you. (I didn't find it either)

Well, drat. I thought my heated steering wheel automatically worked when I set my car into preconditioning mode. I guess it does not. Sorry for all the confusion.

In any case, the more I think about it, my heated steering wheel becomes warm enough in about 20 to 25 seconds. I'm not entirely convinced that setting this to Auto would fix or solve anything.
