Not sure if anyone else has this same complaint, but my sunroof is actually creating heat even though its tinted. Holy cow, if I had some cookie dough, I could set a pan up there and cook them.
I'm wondering if maybe its a replacement and it has cheap tint? Did anyone else have this problem and what did you do to resolve it?
I just keep the sunroof slide cover closed all the time, but what's the point of having a sunroof if it creates that much heat? I mean it will be great in the winter time, but if the temp is above 60, it just sucks.

if my sunroof isnt open the slide is closed i dont drive and start out the sunroof so what the point of haveing the slide opened unless the sunroof is actually opened at least that my opinion

I like the slide open, personal preference I suppose. My '98 GC did not have the same heat issue. I suppose the point of the post was not "if you have it, close it", more the question, is it normally this hot for others?
That way I have a gauge for getting a quality or OEM replacement or just live with it, and close the slide.

Mine gets pretty warm too. I prefer the slide open but I do have to close it sometimes.

My sunroof doesn't seem to be unusually hot -at least no hotter than any other glass surface out in the sun. It is warmer in the cab when the shade is open, but I live in a warm climate so perhaps I just can't judge if it's really "hot"

I prefer to have the shade closed in the summer when it's sunny. It gets hot enough in our black jeep without the sun's rays beating down on my head.
