Does anyone know if another GM vehicle has a memory seat module that is compatible with our seats bottoms? If it attaches to just the driver seat than there is a possibility. It wouldn't work with the mirrors, but it's a start for those who want it.

it's not just the module, the seat motors are different, as the memory seats require a low voltage stepper motor with position sensors., and the non-memory use a high voltage standard motor.

aside from that, like everything else on these cars, you have to have the BCM programmed to cooperate or you will be spinning your wheels in mud going no where.

there are china made aftermarket devices that use timing opposed to position sensors, but they are pretty much crap.

Last 3 of my cars had memory seats, but the easy-in/easy-out feature, where the seat retracts on exit, and moves up at start-up was a great feature.

^^ My Lincoln has that and I love it. When I turn off the Camaro I find myself waiting for the seat to go back...

Memory seats would be cool. I am only 5'5" but being handicaped I have to move the seat all the way back to get my legs out of the car. Then when I get back in I have to move the seat forward and up so I can reach the brake and gas. And even still I scuff up the door and door sill with my feet getting in and out. At least I have the power seat so I am happy.

Absolutely agree.

Flexibility is an issue at my age. I find I have to move the seat all the way back to comfortably get in and out of the car. Be nice to press a button and have the seat move forward to a pre-programmed position like I can do in my '09 Acadia. As it is, I constantly have to make minor adjustments to the seat position while driving.

We apologize for the frustrations. I can definitely document this suggestion into our database for many departments of GM to see.

Definately an option I would have paid for. To me the only things missing from 2010s was memory drivers seat, climate control, and navigation. LS7 would have been nice but that's a whole different story.

add me to the list that wish it would've been an option. My wife and I drive the car about equal. Pretty much every time I get in the car I have to adjust the seat and mirrors.

The seat does get moved - fact. I never feel right for a week afterwards. My 2013 SS has got pretty much everything I need + more, except memory seats (oh and Sat Nav).

I don't know that I care about memory seats, but I do move my seat forward and seat back up when I go to the drag strip, so I could see where it would be useful if I had two settings for myself.

But what I wish could happen easily is the passenger seat could slide up quickly for ease of access, but I wouldn't really want to sacrifice the power seats.
