Quit replacing the rear window actuators at ~$200 to $300 each time they fail.

The actuator failure occurs due to faulty design. Apparently replacement actuators are no better than the originals as they continue to fail. I did this to my Odyssey several years ago after both rear window actuators failed within months of each other. I have not had a single failure since applying this fix.
