Never noticed... but then, I usually have my sunroof shade retracted.. probably 85-90% of the time. The only time I close it, is if I am going to be parked outside on a hot sunny day.

Can't hear any noise from it - it was loud as I opened the windows to test!

Only flaps if i have both windows open. I just wanted to know if there was a problem with my car or a design flaw.

Had all 4 windows open today, still didn't notice anything.maybe I need to have only the front windows down to have anything flap?

Honestly, so far in my experience, nothing to be concerned with... but that might just be my car or my "style" of window combinations... never bothered me, still isn't an issue with my trying to make it do anything.

Only notice it with front windows. Its not a big deal was just curious if others were experiencing same thing.

I have the sunroof open a lot of the time but it doesn't provide much airflow. I guess that means less buffeting at speed but I tend to have the climate control on as well which always seems a bit wrong to me.

Good point, my AC seems to work at half power when I open my sunroof? I suspect the car is aware that you open the sunroof and turns the AC down...
