Harley Davidson and its customers prefer, heck they're proud, to live in pre-historic times. What do you expect?

This is my post, please upvote/link yours.

This seems like a rather simple thing to include in the programming.

It has been 30 degrees celcius + for the last 2 days and will continue to be that way for another few days. I would have killed for the ability to open my windows from the fob and vent all that terrible, stupid hot air out.

Actually what I miss the most from my Lincoln were the cooled seats. Those made the hot days more bearable, cause heat and leather never really work well.

I should post some picture of my back after my 1 hour commute home with the windows and sunroof open. I've never had leather seats before, turns out my back does not take kindly to it.

EDIT: I'm writing it on my hand to vote for the FOB thing when I get home.

It is odd that only the Fusion/MKZ offer it right now.

I haven't tried it on my parents cars because both have different remotes, not the basic ones that had the buttons in the key itself.

I would really love to have this feature on my focus... Love having the windows down but it's a pain in the butt to put em up and down every time + being able to air out the car as I walk up to it would be nice.

Considering that I am one of "those" customers, not much

My other "ride".

Shout-out to our fanatic across the pond! It's a sweet idea, especially when it comes from great Focus customers.

Thanks for sharing your link on our Ford Social site! This type of idea will really get the pot stirring. I'm sure others will build off of this suggestion.

Good way to piggyback! Great features are always put together from many ideas. Be sure to mention it using the link MyThI3LiTe has provided.

Hi everyone -

I'll join this club! This option would come in handy for any time of the year. Like others have mentioned, you can +1 the suggestion or think outside of the box on anything.

*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.
Kudos on checking with your dealer. Try not to program your car too much; it may do your grocery shopping for you. Wait, this doesn't sound so bad!

Take care fellow fanatics,

Thomas

I didn't want to start a new thread, so I'm using this 2-month old one. I guess this article below is wrong about the windows... I'm disappointed :(

I have this feature on my Nissan Titan (2005), it really is nice sometimes when your not in a hurry to get into your stuffy ride, or are about to load a bunch of stuff into it.
