Re: If you could do it over again?

Memory seats are nice to have. My wife and I switch cars a lot and my Camry doesn't have them and its a PIA The slow power seat to move to my position especially since I can't even sit in the car at her setting lol.. The jeep I just push the button and hop in. So convenient

Re: If you could do it over again?

Yeah I've had them on all my Lexuses (my new GS has 3 position passenger memory also actually), I underestimated how annoying it would be to have to readjust the seat when switching drivers on the Jeep, we do it a lot as my wife drives it day to day and I drive it at least 2-3 times a week. Her Prius just had manual controls, and I avoided driving that whenever possible so it wasn't an issue lol

Re: If you could do it over again?

See if I have to change positions a lot like in the Camry I almost prefer manual seats over power since I can just pull the handle up and slide it back quick.. Btw, your gs 350 has the 3.5 L v6 right? My Camry has a less hopped up version (I think) and damn is that a nice engine.. Fast!

Re: If you could do it over again?

Yeah it was easy with the manual seats! Lots of adjustments with the power, and you never seem to be able to get it the same way twice. Hell,mine Lexus has 18 way power seats, with adjustable bolsters, a base extension, an articulating seat back. Good luck getting the seat adjustment to match without memory seats on that!

Yeah it has the 3.5. It is fast, my ES had the same motor as your Camry, the GS has direct and ported injection, about 35 more horsepower and of course it's RWD. Even the detuned version is deceptively fast!

Lol 18 way seats. Jeez. You would never repeat the same setting without memory.. Ya I am enjoying my Camry. And jeep of course.. The v6 jeep feels like a dog though after driving the Camry..

On my 2001 Audi Allroad the compressor went immediately after the Warranty ran out. I have more faith in the Quadra-Lift system; it certainly seems quicker and I bet the parts cost less than the Audis.

Re: If you could do it over again?

I did it again last fall. Replaced my 2011 with a 2013. If I could I would get an early 2011 Overland without QL, but since that is not available anymore, it was a Linmited with lux package. I do miss the leather dash, power tilt/telescope column and wood steering wheel.
