1997 Chevrolet Camaro Owner Comments

problem #3

Windows intermittently worked when the want to. Now drivers window will not go up and passengers side still works when it wants to. The consequences could be devastating as I live in a town that has a high crime rate as in carjacking. I also have my toddler in his carseat and the wind has caused him to stop breathing for a moment and scared me to no end. Then I can not carry a child with asthma because of the wind/air will cause him to have an attack. I am currently trying to raise the money to repair the problem. I researched the problem on-line and discovered this is a problem with the Camaro's and it's not a small problem. Now I am forced to have my car open to theft as I can't roll my window up and I can not carry my precious cargo as it is unsafe to there health. I can't imagine if it were to rain I would not be able to drive it myself..the injuries were to the toddler whom stopped breathing due to much air flow in his face because I was unable to put the window up.
