problem #1

Jul 101997

Astro Van

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
When driving and a big truck passes the Astro and the rear side quarter window shut all by itself, when the window is opened the lock on the window is adjusted so that the window could stay open. But for some reason when something heavy winded comes by like a big truck, the window would shut without any notice. The owner states that there are children that sit back in the rear of the Astro, and that this is dangerous for the window to shut like this.
