Google driving my car at 250 mph no worries you can drink or do what ever you want on the way to Utah and be there in few hours and sleep in car on way home.

It's all fun and games until you can't roll up your windows in a storm because the iPad is freezing up.

I prefer a switch that opens and closes a circuit. Much more reliable

Driving home from Vermont on the Sunday after Winter Storm Nemo my driver side window decided it was a good time to never roll up again. A long and unpleasant ride home.

In my best "Get off my lawn old man voice", When I started driving, 34 yrs ago, power windows were found only on luxury cars. They were far less dependable in those days too. Most drivers actually had to manually crank windows up and down. The 70 Chevelle, my first car, then 10 yrs old, had crank vent windows too. They were the cat's ass. You could fully open both driver's and passenger's vents and be blasted with air on hot days, they were great. I miss the high beam switch on the floor too. Man I'm f'n old!

truthfully, I'd be fine with hand crank windows. I had a couple cars with them when I was younger. One less electrical thing to break.

In the snowboard version, instead of a keurig there'd be a hookah in the center console and a redbull cooler.

My 2011 Jeep Wrangler has crank windows. I love it when I give my 9-year-old son's friends rides to school or a game for the first time on a hot day. They get very confused about how to open the window until my son shows them what to do. Then, he says, "It's old school." :)
