Default Wierd windows

Ok, this may just be a Subaru thing, but it's just plain goofy. When I roll my windows down, they don't go down straight. They turn at an angle when they come down, and they stop at an angle too. Is this normal? Both rears do this and look the same. The fronts even do this to some extent. My right front doesn't even go flush with the door, a hair above but can be pushed flush.

They go back up in the reverse mannor and end up flat when closing.

Thats how a stolen Legacy was found.I was watching cops one night and the cop saw a legacy that had one of the rear windows down,well he thought the window was broken and was forced down causing the glass to sit at an angle.


The cop gets behind him and calls in the plate and finds out the car was reported stolen.If he knew about the window he could have rolled it up and saved himself a trip to jail.

There is no other way if you look at the shape of the door that's the way it fits in there.

It's also a bad idea to shut the door using the glass. Some of the people get out of my car do that and I cringe, best to use the metal door rather than the window
