In three of the four windows in my car, the windows when put down have been stuck and not able to to remain in the up status. The first window (drivers side door) happened two years ago and was fixed under the warranty, however, the passenger side front and back windows have happened with in 3 months of each other.

The vehicle stalled, which caused the vehicle to abruptly pull. There was a vibration when the vehicle was stopped at high speeds(due to warped rotors), a tap noise was coming from the timing belt, and the vehicle would die at the speed of 60 mph.
