This morning the passenger side window will not roll up. It makes some click noise but the window glass can only go down. It is going to rain. My question is if I should send it to the dealer. They want $160 just to take a look. The car has 38K miles and 2.5 years into a 3 year lease. It was flawless until this point. I guess I will return it after 6 months that's for sure. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a classic broken regulator. Dealers certainly aren't the only people who can fix those, and AFAIK there's nothing unique or special about the Volt windows. It does sound like something that needs to be fixed - you just need to decide if you'd rather take it to the dealer, to an independent shop, or do it yourself.

I had my drivers side go out about 10 days after I bought it (private sale). It did require a trip to the dealer and replacement. I did it that way because I was told by the lady I bought it from that the vehicle had the GMPP warranty, which I had the documentation from. Unfortunately they didn't cover at the time because it requires a transfer fee from the new owner. Fortunately it was within the 30 day window, so I didn't lose it, but I did have to pay out of pocket for the repair which I later was reimbursed for. Fair warning than it's an EXPENSIVE dealer repair. Mine was just shy of $350! I could have done it myself to the price of the part, but I'm glad I did it my route since we discovered the owner transfer requirement. If I recall, the part was around $150, but I have since seen it on gmpartsdirect for about $80. If you have some mechanical experience or know someone who does, I would definitely suggest taking a few hours and saving yourself some $$$.
