both front windows roll up the same speed
both rear windows roll up the same speed
one of the front windows is slower than the other

My first 3 cars, all relics of the '70's, were hand crank windows, and I have it today in my Ranger. I guess I'm kind of indifferent to it...and that being the case, it may as well be power windows. Can't think of a reason not to have it.

To revive an old thread, I took my car back in october to get my driver side window checked out. It was rolling VERY slow. Took it to my dealership to get checked out, and they noticed it as well. They wanted to blame the tinting, but I went through the same tint company they recommend going to. So they lubed everything up and everything was fine for a couple months.
I noticed my window was slow once again. I brought it in to get checked out, and now they're saying it's the tint (the tint added thickness and with the tight parameters of the windows, the motor may get worn out).
So basically, the dealership wants me to remove my tint and then get it checked out afterwards. The tint guy said that if it turns out that the tint wasn't the original problem, then he's going to need to be compensated for the time/materials. Luckily my dealership is working with the tint company and will cover me if it turns out that it wasn't the tint.
I had crank windows in my '97 Tacoma and after having that truck for 11 years and then getting a car with auto windows i'll never go back to hand crank windows again lol
If you're upset over someone elses opinions then the issue isn't with the person giving the opinion but rather yourself for taking it personal.
I find that lubing the window seals is a regular maintenance item. About every 6-8 weeks.
My previous car was a Mazda3....no issues there. Maybe Subaru has different tolerances/seal configuration.
Well over the life of a car I'm sure statistically the front window motors get far more than twice as much use as the rear.. and the drivers side front probably more than twice the passenger side... Think how many times it's only a driver, plus going through tolls, drive-thrus, etc.
I have always just assumed they use cheaper/weaker motors in the rear and possibly the front passenger side as opposed to the drivers window. Over millions of vehicles I'm sure it would present a significant savings in production by using cheaper motors on the less used windows...and savings in warranty coverage by ensuring the drivers side is beefier.

2013 WRX hatch. I rolled my driver's side window last night and it wouldn't go up. Finally, after a bunch of tries, it would go up 2", down 1" up 3", etc, and after about 3 minutes it was up all the way. Granted it was 4 degrees outside in CT. But WTF, that's ridiculous for a 2013.
I also have the problem of the passenger side window not going up quick. It's very noticeable. Feels like the seals are holding back the window.

A 2013, potentially 2 years old, can (and very well may) have condensation in the gear box of the drive, making it go sluggish at these temps. See if it gets better when parking in a garage or when temps are a bit higher. If it actually fails, go back to warranty.
You can't have everything - where would you put it?
