One touch up/down stopped functioning after car was taken in for the 1st warranty item, replacement of the battery by the dealer which was determined to be defective. It was determined that the driver's window motor was faulty and the dealer replaced it. When I was changing the oil and filter at home noticed the threaded shaft that the filter screws onto was itself loose and partially unscrewed from the block. I took it in to have it secured to factory specs.
