    I had one put in my Trooper years ago, had a lifetime warranty from the shop. But then, I moved, it leaked, and every winter I would be messing around w/ silicone and duct tape to try and seal it up. NOT worth it unless there is a nationwide warranty. (And even then maybe not...)

    I have had 7.

    Moon roofs have a glass insert you can see through, and then open too.

    Sunroofs are just slide open, but you can't see through them when not open.

    All of mine have been Moonroofs.

    1. 1991 Acura Integra - Sliding Motor broke @ 150k

    2. 1992 Acura Integra - Worked fine

    3. 1996 Honda Prelude - Bolts on track came loose, leaked. Had to take it off, re-grease track, retorque bolts, then it was fine until vehicle was totalled a year later.

    4. 1998 Acura 3.2 TL (awesome car back in the day) - No problems.

    5. 2004 Nissan Altima - Track kept having problems, replaced under warranty. No problems after that. That Altima was the 3.5 v6 SE and it was AWESOME fast for a 4 door car.

    6. 2001 Honda Civic - No problems to report.

    7. 2007 Mazda CX-7 - No problems.

    I really didn't realize I'd had that many (some were wifey's cars). It's like a convertible...on pleasant days it's amazing, but the other 340 days a year it's just there.

    One handy feature of a moonroof...when you're 1st in line @ a traffic light and you pulled up too much to see the light, you can look out the moonroof to see :)

    My 2 current vehicles don't have it, and neither me or wife have ever said one way or another we cared or didn't.
