2000 Buick Century, power windows fell down.1st one, and could not get it back up. Next day another fell down when I wasn't in car. Took to dealer and they said a 3rd fell down by it's self. They charged me over $1,300, saying each window broke for no reason. A month later, the last window, which had no problem would not go down and still doesn't. no way did 4 windows break all at once.I think whatever controls the windows broke and they didn't fix it and cheated me. Now I have the window on driver's side that will not go down. That makes all 4 power windows broken, one still unfixed.

Drivers window failed twice. This last time was not under warranty and total was $622. The regulator has$1 thin plastic piece holding the cable ends that pull the window up and down. Service manager explained the regulator was only good for about 6 years.

Windshield wipers work and go through their cycles but do not park and instead stick straight up. This is a visibility hazard and well known by the dealership mechanics in this model Century, yet as far as I know, there is no safety recall. I do not feel that I should have to pay for this repair.
