The driver's side window intermittantly stopped working and the motor was replaced while the vehicle was still under warranty. Now the rear right side passenger window stopped working one day after it had been rolled down. It was looked at by the Buick dealer, and I was told it would cost well over $500 to fix the window regulator and motor. I asked them at the time if there was a recall on the window motors, since I had already had to have one motor replaced, I was told no. I have since had to pull the window up manually, and tape it so it does not fall down. (not a pretty site). I feel this is a problem and am afraid it will happen to another window and will be forced also to fix that one at a hefty price. I believe there should be a recall on the window motor mechanisms.

We own a 2000 Buick Lesabre. It was given to us by my father in-law who purchased it brand new in 2000. Both of us have always had the car serviced at Buick dealerships for all maintenance including oil changes. We have had several electrical failures, fuel injector problems and now the transmission went out with only 45,000 miles. My husband was driving to the office and the car all of a sudden slowed down and then came to a stop. He described it as someone shifting the car to first gear from fourth. However, the car is an automatic. Luckily, there was no one immediately behind him so he didn't get hit.

I am on my 6th window assembly replacement. Why would they want to keep putting the same defective parts back into your car? the last one I had to pay for at $400. The other 4 were under warranty, the first at 17,000. Now, I am going to not have this one repaired as I cannot afford it. Guess when it's 125 degrees in my car in the summer I'll just have to open all the doors to cool it off! can't put the windows down!
