Everyone of my windows have had to be fixed for slipping. My drivers window was so bad it actually scrapped off the tinting I had put on. The bolts holding in the windows on all of my windows were loose or not fitting. This has happened numerous times and I had my car to the dealer ship on six different occasions to have this fixed. Needless to say they only fixed them one at a time and it took me three times to get them to fix the first one.

On my 2004 Pontiac Vibe, the instrument cluster is lined with a chrome finish that reflects into the windshield making visibility reduced. Ralph nader criticized this over 30 years ago when car manufactures were using chrome finishes that caused noticeable glare. Apparently, Pontiac forgot driver visibility when they added chrome and brushed aluminum to their instrument clusters.
