    Sunroof causing dents in the roof?

    I'm noticing dents in the metal on the roof around the sunroof. The springs for the wind deflector are broken so I don't use the sunroof very often. Have any of you had this problem or do you think the faulty sunroof is causing the dents?

    Yup, mine was all tweaked around the 4 corners as well. Had it all fixed when it was just in the body shop. My body guy said he's seen it on a lot of the Caddy's.

    I've noticed a bit of, not dents as much as waviness around the seal.

    I chalked it up to GM build quality.

    At the same time, I used mine pretty much daily, if nothing else, as a vent for hot air while it sits parked all day.

    I agree on the waves but some of them are pretty bad
