    Hi,
    I was traveling at 75mph with pano roof open to 80% (opened fine). When I tried to close it, it started to move for a split second, but then stopped at 78%. When pushed again, it moved to 76%. I slowed down to 60mph, but it would only close by 2-3% each time I pressed the button to close.

    I had to exit and stop the vehicle at which time I was able to close the pano roof all the way.

    anyone else have this problem? Last time I opened the pano roof was over 3-4 months ago while driving on a highway and didn't have any problems back then.

    Sorry, can't tell you. The pano roof is far to noisy to have open while driving.

    I believe this is pressure related. If you crack open your side windows, the pano will close fine at high speeds. Known issue (has happened to me, and the window-opening-method works great).

    I found that it won't close correctly near 80mph, cracked windows or not. Above 80mph it will tell you to slow down and will not attempt to close the roof.
    And 80mph is not uncommon in states like Nevada, Wyoming, South Dakota, Idaho, Colorado where there are some pretty long distances between points.
