I also have had to replace the window regulators on this olds Aurora 2001. It is ridiculous that GM doesn't have recalls on this car, it is just problem after problem and it costs a fortune to repair these things over and over.

We own a Oldsmobile Aurora and the rear power windows have broke 3 times. The inside plastic piece breaks which causes the window to fall down and not go back up. We feel you have a defective part in the mechanical parts of the power window. We would like to see the manufacturer to cover repairs as each time it has broke it cost $350 to fix with new parts.

On two occasions, the window on the passenger side, rolled down and then would not roll back up again. The first incident was the front window, the second time the back window on the passenger side would no go up. If you have small children, or live in nd it can be dangerous, as the cold weather is very dangerous.

After purchasing this vehicle from another owner, the windows are failing. The right passenger rear window failed, left rear window fell down and now right front passenger window will not work. We have repaired the first window and intend to fix the other two.

I have had to replace three window regulators on my 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora. All have gone out besides the driver window. The two rear windows actually dropped down into the track while the vehicle was in motion. Now both the front passenger and rear driver side windows are stuck in the up position, as if the window motors are out. I have had to replace numerous same parts on multiple occasions with this vehicle. Transmission input speed sensor (twice), left bank air valve (twice), right bank air valve (once), there is water that gets into the spare tire well in the trunk (was remedied once but has since came back ). this vehicle has been in no major accidents. The bumper did have to get repainted as another car was pushed into mine, but aside from that nothing else. The intermediate shaft is always having to be lubed due to a manufacturer defect (costing the consumer $125 every 30,000 miles or so). You wonder why people are not buying american cars. My next one will likely be a Honda just because GM does not stand by their product. Too many problems that are similar when you talk to other owners, but GM does nothing even when they know other owners are having the same problems. With the 2001 Aurora, GM should be recalling the issues with the windows because no owner should have to constantly change out window regulators and motors, nor is it safe.
