Question About the leather steering wheel

I took delivery of my 1LT on 7-11-09 and drive it daily.

Funny thing is that it gets really cold here in Oregon when the arctic air comes down from Alaska and so we have to turn on the heater in the car. Logical.

The other morning it was about 20F and I was driving to work and with the vent on the dash blowing warm air on my hand I was driving along minding my own business when I noticed a cool ... no a COLD breeze on my hand. No, the hand that was holding the steering wheel. But I digress ....

Anyway, I have since discovered that the cold air was coming thru the laces in the leather steering wheel. Kinda tacky, wouldn't you think? Has anyone else experienced this (gotta be above the 45th parallel to have a valid answer )

In a word, no. But, maybe I wasn't paying attention. I'll check on Monday morning.

It's not like a wind tunnel, it's just more a "cold area" near the laces on the spokes but you can feel air in motion.

Thanx for checking. It seems fairly logical to say that either the end of the column isn't closed off or they missed it when they put mine together.
