RIP bumper to bumper warranty

Well after only 1 year 9 months and 14 days, I have officially crossed over 36,000 miles.

No problems yet, other than the 1-2 grind under WOT which I remedied by changing my manual transmission fluid to the Amsoil syncromesh and tweaking my driving style. I recently replaced the battery, but only because I felt it wasn't holding a charge up to my standards. It never had any starting issues, but I could tell it was getting weaker and since the temperatures dropped, I noticed the alternator would always be charging whenever the car was running. The battery itself was 3 years old and it sat the dealer lot for a year with no activity so I got paranoid and replaced it before it had a chance to give me any trouble.

I'm trying to stay on the side of preventative maintenance rather than waiting until something fails. Next spring it's getting new tires, another transmission fluid change, and some new spark plugs.

I've really grown to love my Cruze and I am hoping it will reward my diligence with many years of humble service.

I could lend you some? On the 1st it will be 3 years with the CRUZE and haven't hit 15K yet. I'm covered until 2021 with the GMPP although the GMPP Trademark is now retired. RIP GMPP, a MIC Company
Haha I'd borrow your extra miles if I could. I considered driving to work in reverse to avoid crossing the 36K mark but I think TN frowns upon that.

The op has a gasoline Cruze.
This is correct.

Well I might have jinxed myself. This morning after a decent snow I decided to go to the bank. After I cleared the snow I set off. I then tried to roll my drivers window down and heard an odd noise I had never heard before. Sounded like the motor was moving but the window wasn't. Sure enough, I could move the window down manually. The window will roll itself UP but not DOWN. I'm fairly certain I broke something or some part of the window mechanism came unattached.

I talked to the Chevy dealer and they think it's broken and I'll have to replace the whole regulator which requires drilling rivets and replacing them with bolts. ~$180 for the regulator and ~$140 for labor. I'd replace it myself but I don't have the tools to drill rivets, nor do I really want to drill parts of my door. That's slightly out of my comfort zone. Only 250 miles after my bumper to bumper expired. Hope this isn't a sign of things to come. :(

Has anyone had this problem before? How did you solve it if so?
