    @Kaps- So you mean "impulse up/down" is that simple operation where one has to keep the button pressed/lifted?

    In the brochure, it is written, "Auto down front power windows/impulse", so I thought Auto up/down and impulse up/down are the same.

    THis is correct for Linea. Driver window is 1-touch up & down also. Whereas the other 3 windows are 1-touch down (from driver side panel, not sure from respective individual panel) but for up operation you'll have to keep holding the button (from all panels including driver side panel)

    All windows are one touch down from all panels.

    I knew all were going down but was wondering why other windows were not automatically going up after I release the switch. Now I got it ::D

    We discovered it by accident and thought it to be useful information:

    When the steering wheel is not straight and the ignition is put to off and key is disengaged, sometimes the steering wheel gets locked. In that case, when the key is re-inserted, no matter how much it is turned, the ignition cannot be put on. Apparently it is a safety mechanism.

    You'd need to hold the steering with a hand and move it in whichever direction it can move and simultaneously crank the key for ignition to come back.

    I guess this is the common procedure for all the cars which comes with steering lock.

    It is a standard anti-theft feature. The steering will unlock only with original key.

    One more thing I discovered was that you cannot open the boot of the Linea when the car is in motion. I accidentally pressed the boot-lid open button while driving. I stopped the car after realising my mistake . But the boot was closed. Maybe somebody can try it out :)
