21700 mi If the windows are open 1 inch, they will rattle when the vehicle goes over bumps on slightly bumpy roads. Technicians showed me all they could do was tighten all the bolts. They said the windows for the Lancers also do the same thing. The windows still rattle when they are open 1 inch and I can't believe there is no fix for this.
