    I had the panoramic sunroof in my 2010 Jetta Sportwagen. Mine didn't leak but it rattled, it needed to be reset constantly, and even with the sunshade it was often too bright in the car during the summer. I did clean out the drains regularly myself.

    I actually wanted the SE trim on my Alltrack, but ended up with the S just to avoid the sunroof.

    How do you clean the drains out on these? I was going to ask someone about this as I had seen it mentioned, figured I better figure out where they are and what to look for.

    Long time lurker...back into a VAG product after about 15 years. Grew up with a few corrados that scared me. 2017 AllTrack SE , 900 miles...still has temp tags. I am in round 2 of headliner water issues on the right/rear side.

    Noticed it initially last week; took it in and they replaced 2 pinched drain lines? running to the hatch, and unclogged 4 drains. I picked the car up later on the same day and had the car wash guy leave a hose on it for 5 minutes and watched it drain out on the bottom. They ordered a replacement head liner which will be installed once they receive it in a few weeks.

    In the below pics you can see the original smaller stain (darker color) and then the larger stain is the new one.

    3 days later we've had a mild rain, I have a GIANT water stain in the same location. Put another service claim into VM NA and hoping to get some resolution. A little dismayed about this whole situation .

    Most cars do not leak

    I see 'em.

    For the record: I'm on my 3rd VW sun roof since 1999. NO leaks, ever. I am aware that even non-sun-roofed VW do leak--the welds at the rear, above the lift gate have been the problem. And just because this and other sites report the leaks, MOST cars do not leak.

    Mine leaks too

So, at 10,000 miles in, I'm not really digging the panoramic roof right now.
    I just bought a new 2017 Alltrack SE a week ago and noticed water leaking this morning. The headliner is soaked and was dripping. It?s back at the dealership now for repairs. No mention that they?ve seen this before but I didn?t ask either. Has yours been fixed and been trouble free since? Very disappointing for a brand new car. Less than 100 miles on it.

    Mpls VW:

    Sorry to read that you are experiencing the leaking sunroof issue at less than 100 miles. Mine was repaired, the dealer removed the entire glass panel, "ground down a faulty weld", and replaced the rubber seal around the panoramic glass. So far (3000 miles later), there seems to be no leaking. It's been wintertime since mine was repaired, and I have not opened the panoramic roof since the repair. So, mine has been through maybe 4 or 5 car washes and 3 or 4 rainstorms, so far, no leaking. Good Luck!

    Well; after 2 weeks Im picking the car up tomorrow. It sounds like a weld seam was sanded down, new updated gasket, headliner, etc. Really hoping I've got a similar outcome. The car has been at the shop more than I've driven it up until this point. Fingers crossed!

    Three weeks later; I've picked up the car. I had some dealership quality issues with them replacing headliner; black grease everywhere on a brand new liner, broken grab handles, not re-installing the dome lights , just generally not a great experience from a new car/ dealership service level. They did give me a rental so I guess it was fine.

    I finally washed the car yesterday and opened the sunroof a few times. It seems to have been fixed and the dealer replaced everything that was not addressed during the first few visits as it related to cleanliness, etc. Truly hoping this solves my issues!
