Door/window design flaw...

Car froze last night and when I went to open the door, you guessed it, the window wouldn't roll down a bit to let it open. I thought the window was going to break, but it didn't. I had to fineness it shut also because again, the window wasn't that oh so important inch down. I thought it was cold in Germany? Thought they would've caught this. That is all...

That happened to me a few times here in the NW as well. I wouldn't say it's a "design flaw" - they just don't like the cold because the window ices up and the window is not allowed to roll down. Get some de-icer and you shouldn't have that issue when cold....
