    My car last night had an issue with the rear drivers side window not closing right and it clearly did not want to open in the cold. It complained.
    When I closed it, it didn't close flush with the body of the car.
    I just hope it reverts back when its warmer.
    Anyone else have this issue in the cold weather?
    I'm wondering if this is a design flaw.

    I've had it jam when I opened a door covered in ice. It came down a bit but not fully. Operates normally after a night in the garage.

    It is by design. As in the designers in California did not consider the effects that a "real" winter would have. This happens on other cars with the same door/window design. Try applying silicone spray to the weatherstripping and a pure wax (with no abrasives) to the exterior door glass to see if that helps.
