They say the power window controller may have a sticky feel when you're using it; that's because of "uneven grease application" at the supplier, followed by frequent use.  You should NOT (let your husband?) use stuff like WD-40 to fix that stickiness, it could cause the switch to melt or catch fire.

If you have one of the cars listed above, you should get notification late this month.
