    My M5 has one touch on all windows and the sunroof, it's a nice feature, I guess "we" can not be trusted with these things in America.

    My 323 had 1 touch windows and moonroof AND the rear windows go ALL the way down. I'm surprised the Escalade doesn't have those minor but valuable amenities.

    Re: One touch sunroof ?

    I've never figured out why one manufacture says its safe and others say it's not?
    I think holding a sunroof button is unsafe. All the vehicles I've had that had sunroofs I never once opened it part way. It was either closed, tilted up or open all the way. Part way always made to much wind noise.
    I suppose it's cost that controls the function.
    Anyway I think all windows and sunroofs should be one touch to open or close.
    Just my 2 cents worth.

    I am pretty sure all US cars do not have express up feature.

    I'm pretty sure this could all be solved by a relay of some sort.

    Going to have to ask my electronics wizard about that one.

    Aftermarket sunroofs for the Escalade have the express open/close feature, as well as 3 programable position buttons.
    Webasto/Hollandia is the manufacture..and they make the factory sunroofs for GM.

    Converting a factory system to have these features is possible (i've done it), but it involves changing the sunroof module, switch and custom fabricating a gear.

    So is this a cost issue or safety issue? Personally, American cars were always made "cheaper" than the imports.

    Re: One touch sunroof ?

    IMO it is strickly a cost issue. The leading sunroof company (webasto/Hollandia), only produced a full-feature sunroof for the aftermarket consumer for years. Now in the last few months have they released a low-cost featureless sunroof (like factory) to compete with junk like ASC, for the price conscience consumer.
