Default Anybody else have this problem?

Hard getting into your 05 and newer mustangs this morning with the window freezing and not wanting to initially roll itself down that little bit? I finally got in. Not forcing anything. And started car than like 15-20 seconds later tried to roll down and up the window but it would only move about an eighth of an inch in both directions.......

12°F where I live this morning and no problem. In the past I have had that problem when the car had a nice sheet of freezing rain on it though.

It's just all froze up. My truck does it all of the time and once it gets warmed up it's all good. Not to rub it in but I keep my Mustang in the garage when it is raining or snowing. Only drive it on nice days!

had the issue on many cars from ice built up on the window belt trim goes down just enough for it all to flex then stops again....

Why would you want to roll your window down as soon as you get into the car?...smokers I understand....

Is that question to me or questioning Ford as to why they made it operate that way? Lol

We did not try forcing the window down but we waited a while and eventually after the car warmed up it unfroze and began working correctly.

I ask because I remember dealing with one car awhile back that did that but I couldn't remember if it was the car's design or if you were trying to crack the window a little after you actually got into the car.

Door frozen solid coated with ice... No problem.

I've actually been rather impressed.

Yeah that's what I've been hearing/reading in several areas....... I'm wondering if the seal/weather stripping got wiped down with something it shouldn't have..???
