Just bought a new Buick with all those features. Our first vehicle in almost 20 years. I’m going to use the heck out of those new features.

No problem with memory seats here. Wifey's old 2000 MBZ (sold it) and 2005 F150 were mighty fine and had no issues, even the must have butt warmers functioned perfectly.

I don't plan to own another vehicle without them. I am 6-04, my lovely bride is 5-03 on her tallest of days. Her minivan has the memory seats and it has potentially saved our marriage!

Bigger question is why are you driving a minivan? [emoticon]

Memory seats make some sense to me with a couple of drivers. The easy entry/exit thing makes no sense at all, though. What benefit is that? Especially in something like a truck with plenty of space.

truck nice but not as big a deal as a car. But still easy exit on my denali puts the steering wheel up and in, seat all the way back. Same on my Acura MDX hybrid. That is nice, especially for DW who is short and has the seat quite far forward.

Seems some are confusing memory with easy entry.
Memory is when I set my seat the way I like in my truck and wife sets it they way she likes it. When she drives she pushes "2" and the seat , pedals, etc go to her setting. Then when I drive I push "1" and they all go back to my driving set up.

Easy entry is when the seat slides back on it's own after you turn off the vehicle to supposedly make it easy to get in or out. Just a waste of time in my opinion. Wife has it in her Grand Cherokee. I find it annoying.

The benefit is your seat surface will last longer as your not having to slide on the seat when you enter the vehicle. Also it simply makes entering easier.

I love both features AND in all my vehicles when the vehicle is unlocked, it knows which remote was used and adjusts the seats to the memory position set for that remote. don't even have to push the memory button. seat, pedals, outside mirrors, steering wheel, audio system is all set to my preference by the time the door is opened.

We have a winner!

I like the fact that there is less sliding of my posterior on the leather with this feature.
