Default Remote Top Feature

Does anyone have the remote top feature whereby you can lower or raise the top remotely through the remote keyless entry system? This is listed as an option in the owners manual and since all these new cars came out as "premium" trim, it would seem this option should be available to us.

It would be nice to have but Buick left it out of the US version due to legal reasons. If you hold the unlock button down, all the windows will lower.

I wonder at some point if they could make it available with a software update if we signed off on it .

I purchased mine on 4/30/2016 and it does NOT have the remote top open and close feature.

Still love the car though.

Would like to know the "legal reasons." It says remote top operation is an option in the manual and I would like it in my car. Did you see my thread about the Facebook group I started for Cascada owners and lessees. "Buick Cascada Owners" on Facebook. I will try and limit the group to just owners and lessees of the new Cascadas. No ads or plugs. Just comments about our new cars.

What legal reasons?

My "Brand X" has this feature. I hardly ever use it though. Just as easy to jump into car and drive slowly down my street while putting top up or down while moving.

Legal reasons in America, go figure . The Opel, Holden, and Vauxhall versions have some features that didn't make it to the American version. While at the Detroit auto show, I was told, " the auto drop top feature was left out probably due to legal reasons". I left it at that.

I would hope it would be some other reason and we could get this feature with maybe just a software update. Will do some more digging.

I read on another forum it is on the 2016 models in Canada. I would really like to have this option too. Hoping they add it as a software update!

Default Remote top operation

TO MY FELLOW CASCADA OWNERS:
WHEN I RECEIVED THE NOTICE FROM BUICK ABOUT THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL BREAKING, THAT REMINDED ME ABOUT MY CONCERN WITH THE REMOTE TOP OPERATION THROUGH THE RKE TRANSMITTER. I CALLED BUICK AT 1-800-521-7300 AND SPOKE TO "AL." AFTER DOING SOME RESEARCH AL CALLED ME BACK AND ADVISED THAT THE REMOTE TOP OPERATION FEATURE WAS NOT AVAILABLE ON THE US MODELS BUT ONLY ON THE EUROPEAN MODELS. HE COULD NOT TELL ME WHY HOWEVER. I THEN DECIDED TO SEND BUICK AN EMAIL. I WENT TO THE WWW.BUICK.COM SITE, CLICKED ON "CONTACT US" AND THEN "EMAIL US." I THEN COMPLETED THE FORM UNDER "PRODUCT QUESTION" AND ASKED WHY THE US MODELS DO NOT HAVE THIS REMOTE TOP FEATURE. I AM REQUESTING THAT EACH OF YOU ALSO SEND AN EMAIL TO BUICK ASKING THE SAME QUESTION. WHEN I HEAR FROM BUICK I WILL POST IT ON OUR SITE.
