Sure. Don't let anyone else drive it.

But seriously. Nope. Not available.

I never understood the whole memory seat thing. I drive the car, I stays where I left it. Its remembered

In my old Vette it would constantly want to make minor adjustments when I cranked it up because the seat was worn in. Was annoying

My CTS had this and I found it to be a worthless feature. Maybe if you have a weight problem it could be helpful.

I wish the seats would slide forward all the way when you let passengers in and then go back to the correct setting.

Being a bit OCD, I wish I had them just as an extra measure. I have my seats, side/rear mirrors and wheel set up exactly to my liking. I let others get in or drive my car if asked [and if I trust their judgement/driving] and occasionally have to take time to get the seating position corrected. I would ask them to leave the seats alone but I want them to enjoy the car/drive as much as possible.

Speaking of memory seats, but just in a slightly different sense....is there any such thing as memory foam seats for cars? Is that even a real thing, or possible? I'm just a bit curious. I love the feel of memory foam in my mattress and my pillow. Why not on a car seat.....

I'm presently reading the book Camaro a legend reborn and it has lots of conceptors-engineers comments.

All of them are saying the the Camaro is a Love Affair between the driver and the car...So only a few cars will be driven by more that one driver....So memory seats are not a must....But I would have liked to have this option.

90% of the cars on the road are only driven by one person. The only reason it's not in the car is cost savings. Weight reductions a reason they can use that at least makes sense, but we all know it all comes down to the mighty dollar.

You don't expect some of these bells and whistles in a muscle car, so they can leave them out and save money, regardless of reason.

This si my issue as well. Wish I could tell the wife not to drive it, but that's more of an argument than it's worth.

I think my wife is pretty convinced she doesn't *want* to drive it, unless I need some backup for long trips... Fear the SS LOL

Even though it is very rare that I let someone else drive my car, I move my seat all the time and wish it had a memory feature. My back and neck are pretty bad from a previous accident, and when I get everything in that sweet spot I want to be able to go right back to it.

- When I drop anything in between the seat and console, my seat gets moved.
- When I bring my car in for service, my seat gets moved.
- When I am vacuuming and cleaning my car, my seat gets moved.
- When I am making certain mods to my car, my seat gets moved.
- When family/friends drive my car, safety dictates that my seat gets moved.

Sometimes it can take me a week to get back to that "everything's just right" feeling. It is so much worse for anyone who might share their car with a partner.

Heck my brides 16" shorter than me and memory settings would be great. I loved the feature in my Vette......... I really dislike opening the door in a hard pouring rain storm after she has driven it, and left the darn seat parked in its most forward postion and raised it until it is nearly touching the steering wheel.......argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She's been warned to put things back the way she found them. But always seems to forget...........some things never change........lol

We had memory seats in our 99 Vette and they were invaluable because we both drove the car. The seats and especially the mirrors were totally different for each of us. It would be a nice feature on the Camaro but if I order the manual, memory seats would not be used very often.

Memory seats are great for the first month you have the car. I've never owned a car with memory seat that they worked the way they were supposed to for much longer than that.

I have had a memory seats in my 04 Envoy and loved the feature. Was not happy that my 09 Acadia did not have it. My wife's new Denali has it. Totally worth it. it would be nice in the camaro but I can live without it. I do want the 6 way power passenger seat though.

Has anyone came up with a retrofit memory seat yet? My wife has pretty short legs so trying to get in and out of the car is a pain when the seat is so far up, and holding the power seat button for 5 seconds waiting for it to go back gets her very frustrated lol.

until a mechanic, detailer, whatever has to drive it or move it into a mechanics bay, and he adjusts your seat to do it.

having a weight problem or maybe someone that is disabled like myself.. It takes me a long time to get my seat perfect so that there is no pressure on my titanium femur, hip, and pelvis. Anyone moves my seat and it causes me considerable discomfort and pain..

weight is not an issue, it comes down to money. My 300c had memory seats and swapping out the base for SRT seats is a very common practice with 300, Charger, Magnum owners.. I had the chance to actually weigh the memory and none memory seats, and they weight exactly the same.

the memory module and the switch add less than 1 lbs to the total weight of the vehicle. It comes down to money, nothing else.
