I re-wrote that sentence to confirm your doubts about that "(no...) demasiado bien". It is perfect, and we say that all the time.

Lazarus, what about the "demasiado bien" in this context? I have never seen it used this way, although the meaning is obviously parallel to "too well" in English. I'm surprised to see it, because the English is sarcarstic (that is, "he doesn't drive excessively well"). I have always seen and heard "no ... muy bien." Is this use of "demasiado bien" common'

A mí me parece que Juan no conduce demasiado bien.

:

Cuando quieres, nos vamos a casa.

In infinitive it would be a declaration, and therefore, you wanted to go home already, so your sentence would mean: "Every time you want, we go home" or "Every time you wanted, we went home". If you can't declare whether the other person wants or not (i.e. whenever you want), you use subjunctive.

This is just a declaration of what seems to be the case, so no subjunctive is required. Not sure about the "demasiado bien" here.

Cuando quieras, nos vamos a casa.

The idea here is "whenever you want," which introduces ambiguity and therefore requires the subjunctive.
