Sunroof on an SUV

Are you letting the sun or the moon through the roof of your car when you’re driving through Stephenville? And what is the difference between a sunroof and moonroof, anyway? It’s pretty simple: A sunroof is made of glass or metal that slides open or pops up to allow light to flow into the cabin. The difference between a sunroof and a moonroof is the latter is a clear or tinted glass that can slide between the roof and headliner, tilting open for fresh air. Learn more with Bayer Auto Group:
