I don't think this feature is available on my 07 GS350. (driver seat moves back automatically when the ignition is OFF and vice versa) Is this available on the '10 GS? I read on the forum that 07 LS don't have it but '10 LS has this feature. So does the '10 RX.

Easy exit isn't an option; I think it is included provided the car has automatic seats and automatic steering wheel adjustments (as the wheel is also part of easy exit by lifting and pushing all the way into the dash). Both 2007 RX 400h models that I own have it (although they're completely identical, right down to the color choice, except for AWD and FWD as one was used while I was studying in Michigan while the other was used in Florida) and the 2010 HS 250h I picked up to replace one of the RX400s less than a week ago has it. In fact I can choose on the HS if I want normal easy exit or full easy exit, with full pushing the seat all the way back. Normally I leave it on full unless I know there will be people in the backseat just in case I turn the car off before they get out so it doesn't make it more difficult for them. I'm guessing if it isn't on the 2007 they had to have added it by 2008. A family member of mine has a newer model GS so I can ask her if no one else responds by then but I'm sure they will.
I have a 2010 AWD GS 350, I'm not aware of the seat moving automatically for exit. The steering wheel does telescope out of the way.
I guess one option if you do have trouble getting in and out is to make the "exit" positioning a preset - i.e. set it to "2" and press that when you want to get out, and press "1" after you are in. Just a thought.
The problem with this option is that it makes it only helps if the driver is very short. If the driver is taller, and the seat goes back it only makes it harder for the rear seat passenger to exit. With the seat full back there's very little legroom in the back of the GS.
I drive with my seat full back anyway and normally have to move it forward if I have a passenger behind me

I prefer the ejection seat. It just push you right out, can't be easier than that.
The seat moving back automatically is a safety issue for the back passenger. You can crush their legs. The same goes for window roll up automatically, the heat in the car can rise easily and so killing whatever living thing you have in the car like a dog or a baby. This is why these functions are manually adjust so you know exactly that you are doing it.
