    I would sure like to have one of those.Especially helpful when someone parks so close that you have to squeeze into the car.Been there and done that.

    That's too cool!
    I'd be the one that would hit the wrong button AFTER I put the window down, then fall out on the road. lol

    I'm not so sure it would be a real good idea.

    I noticed they all very carefully did not touch the part of the door that did not slide all the way in...Wonder what would happen if you step on that 'ledge'???

    I am such a meanie......evil thought here........

    If you had this car and your passenger (spouse, teenager, MIL, or rabid hitchhiker) was being a butt head, you could open the door, speed up and turn sharply and out they go......LOL

    I liked it. I think it would be great for people who aren't quite so mobile.

    I liked it a lot, but I wonder what it is like in the rain...how long does it take to lower, think of all that rain pouring in...might be quite wet!

    What if you were in an accident? Doesn't seem safe to me.

    The tailgate on my 1973 Chevy Impala Station Wagon did the same thing. Window went up in the roof and door went under the floor.
