    What is the name of the feature on the S that opens the front windows about 1/2 inch and then closes them that 1/2 when the front doors are closed (preventing air pressure discomfort)? I want to get additional info, but I can't ind anything in the manual or online. TIA

    It isn't specifically for air pressure (I don't think). I believe it is to push the window into the u-shaped seal around the window.

    Most cars with frameless windows do the same thing.

    Sorry, I can't think of a name for it.

    Yep, fairly standard with frameless designs to optimize sealing and "limit" wind noise.

    The 2004 Cadillac XLR had the feature along with adaptive cruise control.
