Had a prob with my car's sunroof on the very day of delivery. They gave some reason, quoting that it was a 'blown fuse'. They replaced sumtin in 5mins and everything was back to normal.

Apart from that, no electrical issiues..touchwood

I dunno but my lancers power windows are weak. though never given any problems.they just take 2-3 secs more than usual to roll up and thats about it.

About my WagonR I dont recall any major electrical glitch I would ever have faced.

Had lost of issues with the Power window of Both Santro and Qualis.

Its really frustrating if the power windows fails when u r just parking the car specially when u r getting late. (IT HAPPENED TO ME COUPLE OF TIMES). I swear to myself never will i go for power windows again in my next new car.

I own an Indica V2. Till date it has not bothered me with its electricals except for one small issue which I have not yet got around to getting solved. The roof lamp has two switches. The left switch has a sort of loose contact. This causes the light to dim and again brighten up at times. The service attendant promised to get it changed as soon as they get it in the inventory. I have not yet got it done. Will do it in the next service. Not a major issue though
