    My drivers side window got stuck down when i first got the car. I took it to the shop and got it fixed. A year later it got stuck again this time it got stuck up in 90 degree whether. I just said forget it. On top of the the defroster stopped working.

    Passenger side window goes down and not up, another electrical nightmare from Volvo. Cannot determine if the
    issue is in the master switch cluster or the passenger side switch assembly. Have two Volvos, both are Frankenstein electrical monsters. Drive train will never die, but the lousy cheap plastic pieces and the electrics are right out of hell.

    I just purchased this car for my son. Driving it back from the dealer, I was unable to raise the rear passenger side window back up to a closed position. I was able to get in the back seat and roll it up from there but not from the driver's side.
