Air is seeping out of the passenger side glass because it may not have been properly sealed at the factory. Also, the battery warning lights comes on upon starting the vehicle. The light dims then brightens as the vehicle is driven. This indicates a failure in the battery. Although the battery is fine. This maybe due to an electrical short. Dealership is not being helpful with resolving any of the problems.

Driver's side window makes loud squealing and window skips when moving up and down (electric windows). Drivers door panel buldges when window is at top of it's travel. Have had at Chevrolet dealer 4 times for repair, problem still there. With the window being on a bind (door buldging) there is a danger on the window breaking when rolling window up to top of travel. Told by Chevrolet they would not warranty this problem any longer and that I would have to live with it.
