Both, driver side front and rear, and passenger side rear window regulator clips are broken. All of the windows dropped down into door and are now being held up with a plastic wedge jammed in the opening to hold the windows up. Three windows on this one vehicle and thousands of other complaints online and there is no recall" when you are driving down the highway at 70 mph, while it is raining, and the window regulator clip breaks and the window drops down with no notice" this is a safety defect that should be repaired by the manufacturer.

I was backing out of my driveway, it was dark outside and I could not see through the rear glass of the vehicle due to the fact that the tint is too dark on these and most SUV's. I feel that they need to make the reverse lights much brighter if they are going to tint the windows that dark.
