Nope, the article is wrong, the USDM MK3 Focus can't do this, at least it can't be programmed to do it by the dealer's IDS tool, where as some of the European versions can. The older Focus might be capable of being programmed, but so far no one is able to on this one.

My Altima had this feature. Loved it. Picking up a '13 Ti at weeks end. Dissapointed.

Hungarian 2012 Focus has this feature, I have a Titanium 1.0 Ecoboost with the keyless entry and long press of lock closes all windows and long press of unlock opens them all, so it is possible on Focus mk3, at least for the Europian builds. It is even mentioned in the manual.

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.
Liked your post.

During the heat wave, the black on black was a killer when I couldn't park my car in the shade at work (and anywhere else I took the car without shade).

Would have been really nice to have this feature!
