This is useful to me during summer, I had it on my 2019 Pilot.
I'm sure it's is technically possible. All of the remote commands are handled by the onboard computer system, so if you had the ability to reprogram a button to run the windows, it could work. However, consumers don't have access to this programming at this time and likely never will.

Update: the platinum edition in Australia has this feature, so it might be possible to download the AUS firmware if you can get your hands on one, but you could lose other features or compatibility.

You may do that by installation of aftermarket car alarm system. But you'll have to use an additional remote or app. Carnival may only just roll up windows remotely.

There is a way to schedule "Ventilation Mode" where it will try and purge your car of hot air, but I don't know of a way to do it on command. I'd recommend just remote starting the car a little bit earlier and hope that gets it cool enough.

AFAIK, it's not really meant to purge "hot" air, but to bring in fresh air to prevent the cabin from having that "stale" air sensation. I haven't tried it yet, but since I park in a closed garage every day, it wouldn't do much good.

How about closing the windows with the key fob? Based on this thread I assume the answer is "no" or "maybe in Australia" but can anyone confirm? I tried a few combinations of press & hold the lock button with no joy, but it'd be great to have this one.

Not as worried about rolling the windows down since there's remote start & climate control, but rolling them up after getting out and realizing a window was cracked would be awesome.

It's a nice thing to add to the wish list. Funny, cars from the 90's have had this feature before, but only on very specific models - it never seemed to go mainstream enough to be offered on most cars. I see more cars with power folding mirrors than with remote window control.
