My dealership has been good to me so far for most of my issues, but this one they won't take care of me because of the tint. They're blaming the tint is causing the window to be "out of tolerance" with respect to the door seal and they won't replace the seal.

This shit is so ridiculous. Please tell me you didn't accept this? I would flip out on them. Ie: what is the tolerance per Toyota, how far out is it? I need exact numbers.

my car freaking came tinted from the dealership when I bought it I wonder what their excuse would be. I hope they pull this shit on me so I can ridicule the person.

Only driver side is doing this. Passenger side is fine. Usage is not the cause as I always roll both windows down, and even if so, this is a defect from the engineering department.

Been raining the past few weeks and temperatures have dropped, but I park in a heated garage...
Update:

September-30-2013 - BRZ in for warranty service now and as a replacement I got the 2014 Subaru Forester (6MT) It has pretty cool features, but NO WHERE NEAR as fun as the FT86's...

October-01-2013 - So far I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with Subaru.

I went in today to pick up my BRZ; all parts are on order now...which includes new window seal and new front quarter triangle window.

Will be going in one more time at least to get them replaced.

100% bullsh!t. Do not accept this...go over their heads if necessary.

Angry Add another

Here is what is happening (
). The dealer just had to replace my drivers side window seal with 10k miles. I wrote Scion corporate and explained in detail and suggested they get to work on an SB. My case number was 1310080912 reported to Scion on 10/08/13 and was acknowledged by a Greg Shono and passed on to National Headquarters Tiffany Harris. So hopefully everyone who has this problem will jump on board and start writing Scion at the following email address (scion_mail@scion.com). BTW... I have the factory tint which was installed at port and is listed on my window sticker when I purchased car. The window tint has no bearing on this problem from all the posts I can read, but I bet Scion tries to use it as an excuse to keep from spending the money on redesigning the seal and or window to fix the real problem.. wonder what there answer will be to us who had factory installed tint? remove tint? no sir. If they wanna do that, I want new glass with tint built into glass.. open your wallets scion.

Mine is pinched and making a squeaking noise when my drivers side window indexes. I also get water coming in when I wash it.

Same issue

I have the exact same issue. Now it is so bad it does it upon closing the door and is clearly rolling every time door/window is used. I had mine replaced once and a few months later it did it again. I am about to get another replacement. I do not know if there is a solution yet. And I have had tint on the car since the second day I owned it.

Hah. I read this thread before heading to work.

Got into my car, lowered the window, and put it up and low and behold, the seal on my driver's side window is also getting caught as the window goes up.

Ugh. I swore I wasn't going to take this car to a dealership. lol.

it's been about 6 months since i last replaced the window seals and i have had no issues. however, it's been getting colder here in texas, and the nights it hits in the 30's the seal begins to get caught. the weather has warmed up a bit now and it no longer gets caught.
