Weight. Don't remember the exact numbers, but the electric seats weigh quite a bit more (I think about 25 lbs per seat).

Also, some people like the simplicity. For example, some of the taller folks like to slide their seat back when they get out of the car and don't like having to wait 5 seconds for the electric one.

Plus it's one less (actually, 2 less) electronic gizmo for the gremlins to get into.
