One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.

Bought this car less than a week ago and the back passenger window won't go up or down. I hear the motor and a crackling noise.

first was front driver window and now front pass window is out
Both driver and passenger windows have fallen into the doors. I got the driver one replaced and 2 wks later the passenger one fell. Is VW responsible for this at all?? I'm tired of paying money I don't have to fix this lemon that I do love...

First my driver rear window failed. The cost of repair was $400. Now my passenger rear window has failed. Obviously a manufacturing problem. VW needs to step up and address these issues with a recall.

First windows would go up and down up and down would not stay up, now they will go down sometimes, and other times they wont go down or up at all.
