This is very true. The windows in our '02 explorer could chop your fingers right off.

I may try to lube the whole thing up, but I havn't had time recently. And it'* fricken cold outside to top it off. The reason that on is so bad is because this car was driven around for years, where ONLY the passenger window and moonroof opened. The rest of the windows are still pretty damn fast for thier age.

LOL, mine are about that fast.


The passenger rear window actually stops sometimes. Gotta coax it up from about half to 2/3 the way up by pulling, and then it goes up by itself


'85 Cressida windows were considerably faster, and '98 Altima windows... hot damn, those are lightning fast compared to the SSE'* suckers
