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.
