uhm this hasnt happend to me in my car yet. but. it sounds like the motor controlling the window. you should be able to access it by taking the door panel off. your car shoud still be covered under warranty and im 95% sure that the motor is under warranty. check it out and take it to the dealer

idk check your warranty papers and see if it's still covered im pretty sure the power window motor is covered. but if not just take it to the dealer and get a price on how much they want to have it fixed if not buy a haynes manual and do it yourself

Before you go buying a motor you should check the switch first. They are notorius for going bad. Mine would do it and usually it was the rear passenger window (I have a vert) that would act up. Hit the switch with authority with you finger, kind of like the way you would when you're pissed at the computer/keyboard only hold it there. If that doesn't work swap the switch assembly with a known good one--say from a buddy's car. It takes all of 15 sec to remove the switch from the door. I've actually dissasembled a switch assembly down to the bare bones to clean up the contacts, haven't had a problem since and that was 3 years ago. Good luck!

If you look, you'll see on the top edge of the plastic piece the switch is mounted in, there is a slot to pry down on. Just use your fingers to pry down on it and pull out. Don't manhandle it since the plastic locking tabs could break. Ease it out and you'll see how the switch is secured. Very simple! GL
