The three passenger windows quit working. They wouldn't stay up either. Evidently there is some kind of cable something or other in it, and that came apart and got all knurled up in there. I don't know cuz its my x's car and I never took the panel off to look at it. But anyway, the driver window is fine, the other 3 are not working and one has a wedge holding it up.

Three of the four window regulators failed. Metal wire broke on all three. 50-70 dollar part. Paid dealer $500 to replace the first one. Did the second one myself and it took 1 hour 30 minutes, only 15 minutes to replace the third one. Found a great instructional video on youtube.

The rear window on driver's side will not go up or down. We are taking it in to be fixed today, June 24, 2014. This car has been driven very little.

I have had all of my windows do this. I have replaced each one. The window cost $100 plus at any auto parts place, but comes with a lifetime guarantee. When I recently had to have another 2 replaced, I simply bought a new one at said auto parts store, had it put in for $35 and returned the one under warranty. It was expensive, but all 4 of my windows work and are now under warranty forever.

All electric windows, except for the driver's door, stopped working. 2 of them actually came off their "tracks"(?) then they dropped all the way down inside the door. I was told by my mechanic that the motors were worn out and not functioning properly.

Both back windows will not stay up. Its like the windows are not on a track. I also have airbag issues. The drivers side airbag sensor went off on a hot day and then it split my dashboard. I have an inch split that is about 18 inches long at the seam on my dash.
