: the contact stated there were two problems with the vehicle. First, the fuel gauge worked intermittently, but the vehicle has not been inspected by the service dealer concerning this issue. There were no warning indicators prior to the intermittent failure of the fuel gauge. Second, the passenger window dropped into the door without warning. The vehicle was inspected by the contact and it was discovered a cable was broken that held the window in place. A shim was added to keep the window in stationary position.

My passenger side window rolls down very slowly. I was told that all 1999 gm trucks and up with power windows have the same problem.
Passenger side window fails to operate. This was caused by a faulty motor which is a common problem.
#1. Rt. Window intermittent. Satisfied with repair #2. Abs sys. Lite on. Abs sys. Inop. Cost was to be $1200, but after neogations repaired under warranty. (vehicle was over 36 mo. Warranty. ) I feel this type failure is too premature @ 26,00 mi.
Power driver window failed in down position. Tailgate cable frayed, ready to break. Abs deploy when brakes applied and bump hit on dry road resulting in loss of breaking power. This vehicle is the worst vehicle I have ever owned and I've had a lot of them.
Front passenger seat belt retractor is locking up while driving. Dealer notified. The driver side window makes noise when rolling down due to regulator assembly failure, also the center console would not open.
Drivers side power window does not adjust sufficently to eliminate blind spot, mirror replaced under warranty. New mirror worked the same. Dealer says that is the way they all are. I am average size. This would be worse with tall drivers.
Power windows would not work.
