Ask the Car Psychic

Dear Car Psychic: Is it possible to buy a new car that comes with manual roll down windows? I have a fear that one day I may crash into a river and won't be able to roll down my window and escape!

Car Psychic: Oh please, what are the odds that would happen? But if you really need to know who still offers that 'un-option' I have provided a list of the 6% of vehicles made today that still offer it.
