Well i am not too sure. If you dont use a power convertible top after 2 years, it most likely will not work after that due to moisture and crap built up, instantly kills the motor when you go to try it after that.
Marc, why the heck dont you use your sunroof? I have to use mine..

I'd worry a little about the lube on the rails, the rubber, etc. You ought to open it up every once in a while. Haven't you ever opened it to put any protectants on the rubber seals? You might do that after 4 years also...
Why I don't use the sunroof? I prefer A/C. I actually never drive without it when it gets warm enough for it. In fact, I never drive with the windows open at all. It's always either heat or A/C. And as for the A/C, this car has the best system that I've ever seen in in all the years that I've been around cars. I took my 2001 off the dealer's lot. It was the only 4.0 that this dealer had in stock, and I had to take it with the sunroof, which I would never have ordered.

Don't worry about those guys Marc. I too am a seldom sunroof user. When it's warm enough I don't like the bright sunshine in my eyes, when too cold, well... it's too cold. And a lot of road dirt comes in as well.
However, I just couldn't miss out on those balmy summer evenings flying through the South Jersey Pine Barrens with my sweety by my side, cool tunes on the CD, and the MOONROOF wide open!!!
Courage! Rip open the sunroof dude!!!!!!

Or in the event of a door failure, for letting you out of the car fast!
I thought that you'd be interested in knowing that I actually did have a door failure once, in a POS that I drove back in the late 1960s. About a month before I traded this !@#$%^& thing in on the car I had before the Aurora (a 1972 442), the lock on the driver's door jammed. The door couldn't be opened, so for a month I climbed in & out though the window. Another one of my unique automotive experiences!
Its funny, I also roll down the windows all the way regardless of temperature when I drive home from one of my friend's house. His parents are chain smokers and I like to "vent" my clothes a bit before I get back home. The cold does not bother me at all in the winter, but the humidity during the summer does get under my skin.
