Default Does Honda have child safety windows that...?

That stop the hand from getting caught out the window? Also do they have climate control in their cars?

My 2000 Jetta has that safety feature and my bf has a brand new fully loaded accord and is afraid to try to see if she has it or not. Afraid she will break it.

My other friends 02 325 has that feature, so yes there are many with this feature.

Climate Control. Yes. It depends on what model and what trim and the year of the car.

Climate Control is an option.

As for the window, no.

As far as I know, there is no car that has that feature. What they do for child safety is not let the window go all the way down in the back seats so that children cannot climb out or fal out easily.

Most European cars have the safety reverse windows (also called anti-pinch), I think it became required there 10 years ago. It was supposed to be required in the US as of 2004 but it was claimed by (mainly US auto lobbyists) that the cost ($6-8 per window) was cost prohibitive and NHTSA reversed the requirement. So there's a LOT of cars with this feature.

Yes the new accord has climate control and safety reverse windows (that feature is apparently defeated and it forces the window up after 3 tries of bump and reverse). Neat way to teach kids to keep their hands away from power windows, LOL!

This is to answer the question and to tell C7S that yes, Honda has that feature. As a matter of fact, that feature has been around since 2010. It is easy to test. Go to a hardware store that has a good plumbing supply. Get a 1/2" PVC pipe. Open a window. Put the pipe in and try to close it. It should stop then back up enough to pull the pipe out.

I hope you were not thinking of testing it with the child's hand/finger. Just remember, this works on necks as well. You can test it by rolling up a blanket. The only problem with these windows is that as they age, they are difficult to close properly.

Edit: Thanks for more clarity on this issue Bill. I rushed in with my answer without reading fully. Once reading it over, I never would have let my answer stand. Interesting about the European version.
