    I have never heard of a CTS moonroof leaking.

    Have the car washed and see if it leaks. The answer to your question is simple.

    No problems whatsoever with the Ultra View Roof. My car was built 12-07. It's a great feature. Good luck!

    Re: 2008 cts ultra view moonroof leaks.

    No problems with mine so far except for minor clicks/rattles with it closed. Other people on the forum have reported that their dealers have been able to re-seat the rear portion of the moonroof to correct this issue. Mine seems to be getting better as I put more miles on the car (most noticeable when the car is hot and the car flexes going through a gutter or over a large pothole) so I'm waiting before I ask the dealer to look at it, but you might listen carefully and ask them to correct any rattles before you drive off the lot.

    Also, if you like to drive with the windows down, try that on your test drive, as the fabric sun cover tends to vibrate in the wind with the windows down. (The solution is to open the cover if you roll down the windows and drive at speed.)

    All the minor issues aside, I'm happy my car has the moonroof option and if I bought the car again, I'd make sure it had one.

    Re: 2008 cts ultra view moonroof leaks.

    In case it helps anyone, I just cleaned out my drain tubes on my 2009 CTS Sedan. The front is easy, snake some mechanic's wire down. You could also pull the wheel well cover off if you are having a tough time. It can also be seen from the door jam if you move the plastic divider out of the way. The back you can't get to from above. Most directions say you have to take off the wheel and wheel well cover to get at the tube. It's easier to just pull back the carpet in the trunk and pull the rubber gromet out and clean it from the trunk. Then you don't have to take the wheel apart.

    I ended up cutting off their bad attempt at a one way valve (flaps at the end of the tube). I think that's what was causing the clogs.

    Now my hardest thing left is cleaning up the interior of the car. I pulled the back seat out and felt under the carpet. It's soaked. I'm going to end up pulling the front seats and basically pulling the entire rear carpet out so I can clean and get ride of the musty smell. If anyone has tips on cleaning, I'm all ears.
