My car has a sunroof but I really didn't care either way when I bought it. G85 was the only must have option.

Yup, that's the one option I demanded when I was buying my LNF.

I just can't see selling a car because it didn't have a sunroof.

Mines a 2010 so it did come with the sunroof. I use it often and yes it does rattle alot now, but I don't mind it so much. If you have it, use it lol!!

I'm so happy mine does not have one after seeing all the threads on here of people having problems with theirs.

I try not to use mine unless its a really beautiful day and i wanna let it all hang out. I see way too many cars and upset customers that find out it can cost thousands to change the sunroof cassette in their cars once it breaks. its a nice toy that's expensive to fix

Sunroofs are a pain in the ass. My G5GT does not have one and I love it. It's also one of the reasons why I got such a good deal on the car, that and the 5 speed. sat on the dealer's lot forever, until I saw it.

I would guess it involves greasing the sunroof gasket with white lithium grease and greasing up the tracks with something slightly heavier every so often. But I don't know the official maintenance.

Most useless option on a car. Just makes ridiculous noise when driving with the Windows open.

I hate mine. It's a selling feature that no one uses after the novelty wears off.

Its a fun thing to use sometimes but in all honesty I'd rather have a dome light so i can actually see into the back seats.

I have a sunroof in my 2.4. When I drive the car is always open. I never use the ac in any of my cars i just keep the windows down and sunroof open. I dont even shut the little shade. Its been open since i bought the car.

How do you survive without A/C? Must not get too hot where you live.

He still kept it a year and a half, but in the summer here, we don't get nice weather much, so when it is nice, we like having sunroofs, T-tops and or convertibles.

I wish I didn't have one. They were designed poorly to fit a 25k car. They break constantly, and when open, add aerodynamic drag. Ick.

Opening a hole in your car, be it the sunroof or a window, always adds drag.
