The memory seats on the LaCrosse do not work. GM is working on a fix for this problem for the past 6 months. Can it be that almost every GM car offers memory seats but the ones in the LaCrosse can't be made to work after 6 months? The dealer can't do any more for the customer if GM isn't focused on fixing the car's problems. GM, not the dealer, also told me that the rear backup camera is not designed to work in full sunlight or in damp weather and that the intermittent white lines or blank screen is normal. I came from another brand and their camera worked flawlessly. Does GM think a customer is stupid?

I guess I've already posted something similar, but I have a CXL and the memory seats work perfectly on my car. Whether or not they work on the CXS is another matter that I can't speak to.

Exactly what problem you have with seat memory? Mine works well.
Tip 1 when set the memory, push memory button first then push #1 or #2 to set memory (reason, the index finger tends to touch the #1 button before the thumb touch the memory button) and it moves the seat instead to set the memory
Tip 2: push and hold button #1 or #2 until it gets to the final position, release halfway will stop the move.

Have been off the forum for a while. However, do receive emails on new postings. I also have a problem with poor AM radio reception. It must be the radio since my other car and also my daughters has excellent AM radio reception using the same station(s) and location here in MI. I will be taking my CXS 2010 into dealer next month and have them check it out. I did have problems with radio months ago and they re-programmed it. So, I will report back next month on AM reception. Sorry I can't provide anymore at this time.
I am still waiting on the proper Wheel Locks since 10/2009.

Had my first service yesterday, Can confirm for those like me who have a 2010 and thought they had ordered this feature, there is no fix, nor will there be one. You need to have a 2011 with the right package to get it. Oh well.

I can answer this one:
1. If you use the easy exit system, the seat moves back when you open the door to get out, but when you come back in the car, about 50% of the time it just stays way back, until you press and hold your memory seat position to return it back to the normal position.
2. The press and hold system is the stupidest thing possible, why not just press and release the memory button?
3. If you have programmed the key fob to the driver, that does not work either. For example, I have a key fob and my wife has one. If she unlocks the car using her keyfob, the memory should automatically adjust to her settings, and vice versa. That doesnt work.
I have a CXS which just crossed 5000 miles.

Check and see if it's really 50% of the time or simply it returns when your car is locked and you use the FOB to unlock it and it doesn't return if your car is unlocked and you simply open the door with the handle.
That's the way it is designed to work and that's what my car does - every time.

This is what is happening. I turn the car off, open the door, the seat moves back. I lock the door, come back an hour later, unlock the door by pulling the handle, and about 50% of the time, the seat moves forward, the other half, it just sits there in the exit position. So, then, I have to hold the button down that corresponds to my memory seat to put the seat in the correct position.
The seat moving back and force should be tied to the ignition being turned on / off and not to the door opening and closing.

All I can tell you is when I hit the unlock button on the FOB, the seat always slides back. When I don't have the car locked (e.g like when it's in my garage) and simply open the door, it never slides back.

Reading closely it sounds like adpcs is unlocking the door without using the FOB? He's just pulling the door handle and, I assume, the car unlocks because of the presence of the key transponder in his pocket.
You are using the FOB to unlock each time?
Do I have it right from the posts?
