Nothing like the feeling of trying to jump in your ride, only to find the steering wheel trying to occupy the same space as some your favorite internal (or external) organs.
I did a search on retrofitting the seats to have the memory not too long ago and came across an interesting idea in a thread on the subject. The poster had suggested that maybe a kill switch for the seat power could be wired in under the seat so that you could toggle it "on" if you wanted to make an adjustment and "off" the rest of the time to prevent someone changing it. I think that's a fairly decent solution actually, except I'm not sure where I'd start trying to set that up.

I wouldn't take it that far, just a minor beef on my part.

When I was a kid in college I worked as service tech at a Honda dealership. I'm 6'5", so most of the time, I had to move the seats in customers' cars. Before I even got in, I used to take a piece of chalk and mark a spot on the seat rail so I knew where to slide it back to when I was finished. I never touched any other settings. Recline, steering wheel tilt, mirrors... nothing. Just slid the seat back, and returned it to its original position when I was finished.

I understand that techs have to mess with the settings if they need to perform a road test. But damn, how comfortable do you need to get to drive the car 30 feet into the service bay for an oil or tire change?

The 2020 TRD Pro has power seats with heat in front but no cooling or memory options.

Once in a while the wife or a service tech drives it and throws my world into disarray so for those instances it would be nice to have. I guess that’s the only thing I’d like to see come over from the Limited but to be honest, the creature feature package is so far beyond the 4th gen and Tundra I had that it makes me quite happy. Those features were one of the major reasons a new 4Runner is in my driveway again instead of something else.
