Default Power Window problem

Has anyone had the problem of the passenger side window going up at half the speed as the driver side?

Seen that on mine when cold , I even tried a graphite lub along the rails.
The xpress up/down is hard to use when it's very cold.

Works fine in summer.

hmmm ... weak window lift motors??? My driver's window shoots up & down like a rocket ... it's nearly impossible to open it just a "crack", anything more than a hair's touch on the button, and it's then either full-up or full-down.

The "express up" feature is particularly annoying ... I guess this is supposed to be "programmable", but why should they even let it default to this potentially dangerous mode of operation? I don't trust the motor torque-current sensors to not pinch fingers that get in the way of this glass guillotine. Dumb feature.

the reason why might do that is these days most passagers are AC hogs or none at all so there is no need for "crack" .

warranty on windows is 3/36000. most 07s would be out. weak windows were 07s and maybe early 08s. you would have to live in a cold climate to notice but they are very weak.

Pretty sure my passenger window does it at 105 degrees I live in Wisconsin. The cold didn't affect it and of course I didn't notice it until this year and yes my XE has high mileage at 51,000 I drive 350 miles every weekend so it's all nice hwy miles at 60 mph.
