I had a 2007 F150 King Ranch. I liked how the sunroof brightened it up inside the cab. Rarely opened it though, & when I did use it, usually just tilted the back open. It had 2 options fully open or tilt back portion up. When I was shopping for a new truck F150, I noticed the sunroof had changed to the panoramic, & thought it was overkill. Also heard many stories of the large sunroofs coming off the tracks, & leaking.

Glad I don't have one in my current truck.

Never use it, didn't want it, but had no choice. The sun roof is a carry-over from the times before a/c, MB was the first to have it, if memory serves. Now it is completely unnecessary IMO.

I’ve hardly used the sunroofs we’ve had in our vehicles. I don’t mind them but the wife doesn’t like the sun coming in and hitting her head.

As for leaks, I’ve never had one leak and considering I live in the rainy PNW, that’s something. Once a year I apply Gummiflege or another similar product to the seals .

Numerous reports from many brands of spontaneous sunroof glass cracking / exploding. Often NOT covered by warranty ...

I used to crack it in the summer sun when it wasn't supposed to rain to let the cracked front windows keep some airflow into the interior and keep it cooler.

When driving at highway speeds too much wind noise for me. Rarely used otherwise except around town.

I don't have one now and only miss it when I want to put the sunshade up and crack the top to let the hot air out.

Never use them. But every vehicle I own are top line models so they have sunroofs.

I assume that’s meant as a joke, but in case it isn’t, I’ll just note that a hole in the roof does not increase my enjoyment of either my vehicles or my life.

I might get a new Camaro without a sunroof.

Zero need for something that might leak and cause trouble.

Rarely. It's either too bright, too hot, or too noisy.

I'd just as soon give up the radio before ditching a sunroof but you can't even get a car now without a radio.

I purchased a Honda with a sunroof in order to get anti-lock brakes. Never used it. Just another place to exit the vehicle in a crash.

I raise my moonroof whenever possible. That's most of the time here. Even with the A/C on, I prefer a bit of a fresh breeze. I don't have any allergies that might cause irritation.
