A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.

Both windows roll down completely but rolling back up, seems to do it in stages. Can take awhile

The windows started out going up a little over time, but then after a while, they stopped all together. I had to drive around for a month with my window about 1/4 inch of the way down. I had to replace the motor completely in the drivers side door. The passenger side window is now doing the same thing, so I just dont use it.
I have had the middle console electric button unit replaced. That helped my problem with my driver window. However, due to the nature of force my EX would use to SLAM the door every chance he could....I have had this problem for 2 years....

Passenger window stops and have to wait for it to put it back up sometimes takes 10 mins.
it eventually rolled back up
Passenger side window, goes down in stages and when it stops working you just have to wait a few minutes and it starts working again. Haven't fixed as of yet. Both rear windows are inoperable.

My windows would roll down, but not back up all the way or at all. It would take days or even weeks of trying to get my windows to roll back up. I always scared toll-booth workers when I'd start to open my door to pay the fee, instead of rolling down my window.

bought mine used at 45,000 miles. Passenger side window gave out weeks after purchase. otherwise at 80,000 miles the CD player gave out and at 90,000 miles i got my first tire change and brake job. This was my first car and it has run better than most i've seen. I recommend purchasing this car when you live in an area with pretty flat land and cooler temperatures. Fantastic gas milage, i get 400miles per tank, great aero dynamics, nice interior, lots of room to play to upgrade and enhance your interior. I recommend rainex, an interior power converter for wall plug cell phones and laptops, and seat covers. Try this car, I know you will be as happy as me. ^_^
