    Back passenger window dropped a few inches but corresponding power button wouldnt put window up. Then window just dropped into door. Took it for repair and was told that the little plastic piece was broken off by the wire being by it. Paid $300 for repair. One week later the driver's window dropped into door when I pushed power button to put window down. Had to drive 1 1/2 hours in 20 degree weather. After reading about this being a common problem, the repair man said the tracks are made cheaply, I feel this should be a recall item.I am going to contact Cadillac.

    Rear passenger window then the from passenger window all with in 3 months apart. Very costly to fix, I just bought the window tool. Please wish me luck. Although my father was a master machanic in his time, I do the computer repair and NOT car repair, with the price of fixing I have to give it a try. I pray I don't make things worse. I agree this should be an recall. My warrenty out too. :-(
