I have an 08 Ford Expedition. The power windows have failed numerous times and have become a distraction when I'm driving. I almost rear ended someone today due to this defect. Ford has rebuilt them a couple of times and repaired them at least 3 other times. They were rebuilt 2 months ago and have failed again.

While my wife was rolling up the passenger side window in our vehicle, the window became stuck and would not roll back up. Now my wife and two kids were stuck riding around with a widow halfway rolled down in cold weather. She took the vehicle to the dealership and they wanted close to 400$ to repair it. This is pretty bad considering there is thousands of complaints on the internet on this same issue. A faulty window regulator. I called the parts department to get a price, and the sales person even told me this was a very common problem. At 400$ times 4 adds up and is ridiculous for a $50,000 vehicle.

My 2008 Ford Expedition passenger front side window started a high pitch squeak/squeal when going up and down (power windows)a week later my driver front side window started the same, they both did this for about a month and then one morning I put the driver side down and went to put it up it started to shimmy up and down like it wanted to go up but would then go down again, after playing with it my husband finally got it to go up. Since then I had used it 2 weeks later to find that the window shimmied again while trying to put it up and following trying to get the window up there was a loud noise the window wouldn't go up at all. Took it to the dealership and the inside cable for the power window was broken, since this is not a warrantied item, we had them replaced the "window regulator" on the drivers side and the passenger side is not yet fixed.

Experienced problem with power windows failing to operate whenever vehicle was in direct sunlight ( 90 degree or more) with all windows closed. Two dealers were notified and nothing could be found because by the time consumer got to the dealer the windows were working properly. Seeking help from NHTSA in this matter. Replaced main power window switch on driver side on 5-26-00. According to the police report, the consumer entered the vehicle, placed the vehicle into reverse, when suddenly the vehicle accelerated backwards in a clockwise direction. During the reverse movement, the consumer struck the left front of another vehicle and hit a pedestrian who was ultimately killed. Updated 04/06/10
