for $55,000 you would expect this to work, and closing the windows with the remote.

What? No doubt this is something mentioned in the manual I haven't read or manual I haven't received.

Hell, for $85,000 you would think that they would've replaced the remote start with remote windows close and open.

Also, lock with horn and lights is great for us that need double mental reassurance that we've locked up as we find ourselves worried that we didn't lock up and end up walking back to the car 10 mins later only to find out that we did lock it. It's never happened but I still do it.

Then there's that weird habit of hitting the 'lock' button on the remote several times from miles away 'just to be sure'.

Is that what it is - old age?

I have unwittingly given a couple of people a bit of a fright when I approach from maybe 20-30 feet away in the school carpark and have hit the unlock followed by the liftgate open.... and they just happen to be walking past the rear (very close to it) when the liftgate goes up. Ooops...

Re: UConnect 8.4 International / Export

Maybe that's why they took the horn bit off: Too many guys pressing the lock button 'just to be sure' and running the battery down.
