2010 Volkswagen GTI: Oops! I Left the Sunroof Open Overnight

Brain fade. That's my only explanation for leaving our 2010 Volkswagen GTI's sunroof open overnight.

I don't usually open sunroofs - I'm not a big fan. But 6'6" Kellan and I were remarking how the sunroof doesn't come close to impinging on his headroom, even though it's the kind that sucks down into the headliner rather than moving up and out.

I got lucky. No rain. Too little relative humidity for morning dew. The seats weren't damp at all. And the neighborhood cats didn't drop in for a nap, or worse.

As for the GTI's sunroof, this is one car where tall guys don't have to avoid the option to get that extra little bit of head clearance.
