Power Sunroof

So my jeep got washed away with sandy but now I'm back looking for another Jeep. The jeep I am looking at has a sunroof which my old one didn't...thing is I had a bad past with them. My first car had a sunroof that rattled and leaked water after and few years.. the rental that i have now has a sunroof which also rattles non-stop. My questions is for the people that have a sunroof and good how has it been? Any rattle or leaks? or other issues? I don't want to a buy the jeep to have this problem.

Re: Power Sunroof

My Overland has the "panoramic" sunroof, which takes up about 3/4 of the entire roof. I was concerned that it would start to rattle, leak, etc., especially since I do take the car off-road "energetically" and I'm sure the frame gets plenty of twisting loads placed on it, plus vibration from washboarded roads, etc.

I'm happy to say the sunroof (and the entire vehicle) has been rock-solid. No rattles or leaks.

The headliner did come loose from one of the attachment clips at one point, which resulted in a soft rattle from right behind my head, but it snapped right back into place.

22k miles.

Re: Power Sunroof

pano here too, it didn't rattle, but it squeaked and a little silicone lube took care of that.

Re: Power Sunroof

Pano roof. 27,700 miles. No issues. Love how it brightens the interior.

Re: Power Sunroof

I have the pano roof, but I never open it or even open the shade. I wish Jeep would offer the Overland without any sunroof/pano roof and save me a bunch of money.

Re: Power Sunroof

Normal sunroof, 6k miles, no problems. I don't use it as much as I thought that I would.

Re: Power Sunroof

Pano on my 2012 Limited. No issues, well maybe a little wind noise if the cover is open. A lot quiter than the Sky Slider that I had in the Liberty - it was cool - big hole in the top when it was open.

Re: Power Sunroof

42k miles. Got the pano in the O-land. Had a drain channel problem, rain leaked on the passenger A-pillar trim. It rained very hard to force this failure. The D-ship repaired the improperly installed drain channel, replaced the head liner, and all is well now. Since the repair (knocking on wood) I have had no problems.
