The contact owns a 2003 Toyota Matrix. While driving approximately 35 mph on normal road conditions, the front driver and passenger side power windows were activated and the contact heard a loud squeaking and rattling noise. In addition, the front driver's side window would not close completely when activated. The contact received a recall notice for NHTSA campaign id number 08V162000 (visibility:glass, side/rear). The vehicle was repaired; however, the recall remedy has not corrected the issue. The failure mileage was unknown and the current mileage is 140,000. Updated 3/3/09 updated 03/04/09

Matrix 4-cyl

I notice an occasional popping noise when rolling up and down the windows on my 2003 Toyota Matrix. This concerns me, as I believe that the glass could ultimately shatter if this persists or gets any worse.
