Any ideas why Honda didn't go properly panoramic with the glass roof by making the blinds disappear to the front & back instead of in the middle of the roof? Would've been a nicer feature I think...
Please NO!!! My 2 kids are always arguing over having the whole thing open or closed!!!The X-Trail has a single aperture glass roof with single blind & on a test drive didn't notice anything wobbly there.
Also it's a shame the front & back apertures on the Civic cannot be controlled independently of each other...
I used to be like that too. I figured there's never really any reason to close the sunroof. Until I drove up north and it was -25 degrees C outside. The glass roof felt cold, and poured chill down my neck. Closing the roof reduced this effect considerably. It was dark outside, anyway, so closing the roof didn't make the interior any darker.Mine is open 99.9% of the time, only ever close it when showing it off
Does this mean the glass roof lets plenty of sun heat through? Odd, because the sun doesn't feel as hot through the roof, as it does through the side windows and the windscreen. It is slightly tinted, though, maybe that cuts the radiation down some?There are coatings that are available for automotive glass such as I.R film which drastically reduces the amoung of solar heat transmission into the cabin along with anti-reflective films etc but these were in their infancy during development (hence very expensive) and were not implemented.
