I'm somewhat underwhelmed by the equipment level of my car. For just under $40k, you'd think they could've afforded to throw in auto HVAC and a power passenger seat...sheesh!

Actually, I'd just like a way to make the passenger seat a little higher. My wife says she feels a little like a kid in a bathtub.

Thats an easy fix... Add spacers.

Happy Motoring,

I for one also would have enjoyed a memory function as I have in my Durango. Certainly I am the predominant driver, but if my wife had an inkling, which hasn't happened yet in the 7 months I have had the car, the seats, mirrors, and radio would all be in memory. This would also simplify things if the passenger seat were motorized as well. Just my 2 cents.

See if you do the power seat on the passengers side it will be a good reason NOT to let anyone ride back there! I really do not like the fact our drivers seat does not have the quick release, I asked the SRT engineers about it and they said "Blame the bean counters, we win some but not all of them" So just like cutting dealers they save a few pennies just to piss us off!

A pillow would help LOL, of course under her behind and not under her head!

The memory function is the only reason I would prefer power seats (especially recline). Otherwise a lever is quicker and why add another 50lbs, I personally wish the drivers side was manual as well.

Now the memory function is something that I would really like. Even though I am the only one that drives my car, I have two positions. One for cruising, and one for up on the wheel driving it hard.

{ agree a power passenger seat and memory weould be nice. Someone should be able to come up with this at areasonable cost. I underdtand the 2006 to 2008 Magumn ses=at bracket would work . Just need a wiring harness. THE CAMARO HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND THEY FINALLY MADE A OPTION IN 2012. A wiring harness was available and power seat bracket was avaible to correct the lack of power for the camaro. Someone at a dodge dealer should be able to come up with part numbers to make a conversion.
