QotD: Moonroof

Question: Does your car have a moonroof? How often do you use it?

My Answer: Yes. My first car, a 1999 Sunfire, had a moonroof and the thing was open all the time. Even in the winter. The Aztek didn't have one, and it's the only thing I'd have done differently if I could have custom-ordered it. The Touareg has one, and I'm thankful. It's down all the time, except the obvious: when it's brutally cold or when it's raining/snowing (soon).

  1. Nearly ever car I have owned has had a moonroof. My first car, a 1979 Ford LTD did not. My second, a 1994 Saturn SL2 did. My Jeep was a convertible, if that counts. My current car, a 2003 VW Jetta, has a moonroof.

    In every case that I had one, I have it open nearly all the time if it's below 75F. and not precipitating. Summers down here get too hot to use them all the time, so usually the shade is pulled even.

    My favorite time to use it is when it's 40-60F outside. I open my car's moonroof more often than I open my car's windows.

  2. I've never had a car with a moonroof. My wife is getting a car soon and she really wants one with what she calls a "sunroof."

    Hmmm... I never thought about how much better it would be to have airflow into a car without it blowing into your face and hair.
