One day the drivers side power window just stopped working. It didn't make any noise or do anything, it just stopped. It didn't seem like a big deal, BUT I didn't realize how much you use that window. Driving through at fast food places, pay booths,dropping off your mail, and my husband is in the military so you have to show your id every time you go on post. It was really annoying. We took it in and had to pay $100 on top of our supposed extended warranty. Then a year later I had it happen again, BUT because we had moved to a different state I had to pay AGAIN! Then a year after that the passenger side window went out, that was a little different so that will get it's own complaint.

We had driven 6 hours to see my parents. It was really hot, and we rolled down the window while sitting in a parking lot to get some air, and when we were leaving the window would not rolls back up again. All there was, was a weird sound like broken glass moving around on a belt inside the window. We had to drive 6 hours in 100 degree temperatures with plastic taped to the side of our van. It was horrible! The next day I took it into get fixed and they informed me that the belt was most likely off the track and it would be an easy fix, but it turned out that the motor was completely shot and they had to replace it. The supposed extended warranty covered all but $250. If it had gotten stuck in the up position I don't think I would have bothered fixing it. Unfortunately, that is the 3rd time that I have had to fix the power windows in this vehicle, and I better not ever have to do it again!

Window will usually go down but often will not go up again. Window motor & switches all meter out as ok & motor runs well with window out of door. Problem is window gets cocked in tracks at angle slightly off horizontal, then it sticks in place and window motor draws too much current & stops. Actual cause is the window tracks have become misaligned as the door has warped either from the weight of the door or people supporting their weight on the arm rest as they exit. The door is just not made stiff enough to maintain its shape. I lube the tracks with dry silicon or graphite for a 3-4 month fix. I carry a small suction cup and try not to let the window all the way down so i can pull it up a half inch or so & realign the glass. Sometime in the future the motor will overheat too much & burn out. I'm an expert at removing the interior door panel!!!!
