ANSWER : The windows can be repaired if you request a window regulator/track inspection. For door lock issues, please request door locking system diagnostic/repair. The engine operating condition problem you are having should be diagnosed as a possible misfire although the mechanic would consider a fuller slate of possibilities in order to get to a resolution (i.e., pinpoint the fault). For example, you could have an issue with one or more ignition coils, a sticky fuel injector, the throttle position sensor, a vacuum leak, faulty oxygen sensor, and so forth. If you request the misfire diagnostic, the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you.
