If it were me with this issue.. I would try jumping cables to your honda, as if you needed a jump, turn on your subaru, and then see if the window works better. My battery in one of my subies was getting weak and I thought the window motor was going out. I reconditioned the battery and it operates fast, like new. It is just a theory. Do the other windows do the same? If my help isn't enough, I would recommend going to real forums, subaruforester.org, NASIOC, etc. Best regards,

I bought a brand new 2015 Forester. Same problem None of the windows goes down in cold weather. Keep the heat on for an hour then the windows starts working except the driver side one. The heating system is also very poor. It takes at least half an hour to warm up. Defrost is also horrible.
