My German Grand C-Max rental had this feature, I liked being able to drive with all the windows down and roll them all up when walking away.

For me, it's a pita and would love to have a 1 button option for open all/close all. Especially since I have to always close the sunroof before powering off the car.
Just the thought of having all my windows and Sunroof close with 1 push is exciting.

But I would love this feature, even better would be those with rain sensing wipers to have the the option of the sunroof closing w/rain sensing.

I mean, we have all these options listed in the steering display, why not just add these there especially since they pretty much already exist in the EU version?

My 2001 BMW 740i does it to open the windows and moonroof. I had to do some coding to have them close as well. Very handy in summer.

Exactly. My BMW does this and I dare say I use the feature every single time I get into my car on hot summer days (in TX, no less).

My reply from the dealer:

"I looked into that with my service department and they were telling me they have not seen or heard a way to program that with the American Focus's. The Fusion is the only car they can do that with. Sorry about that"

*sigh* maybe soon we will get some smart dude that comes along and makes a version of vag-com software for our car. Then we can all program our cars to do whatever we want them too.

Not true, most Harley's don't have ABS, hell its only an option on a couple of the bigger touring style bikes here or there.

My Saab 9-3 Aero sedan had this feature - Hold Unlock for 3-5 seconds and moonroof & front windows open

The wife's Saab 9-3 Aero Convertible has this. Holding the unlock button down will cause the top to drop and stow away while lowering the windows.

Very cool feature to use and impresses everyone.

Wish my Focus Titanium had this feature so will +1 and add comments on the Ford Social Site.
