Average Mileage: 101,628 mi (10,000 mi - 150,000 mi)


The bolts attaching the front door window glass to the window regulator may come loose. This can cause the window regulator to become damaged and possibly causing the window glass to break. Some 2003 & 2004 models have been recalled for the issue.

  • Loose bolts. Recalled once and repaired....problem re-appeared.

    Need to again repair passenger window as plastic connector between regulator bolt and glass fractured in half. Can't just buy replacement plastic saddles for glass but rather GM will only sell me a $400.00+ window!

  • I had a problem opening and closing the driver's window. Someone told me that their window had shttered and then I found out about a rcall so I did not open it unless absloutely necessar until the dealer got the parts.It took a while because they had to get special bolts made. I gound out when the dealer had the parts and called for an appointment myself and it is fine now.
