I've suspected this.... and I thought Ford was running a big risk........ and apparently I was right!!! HA!Why is the MKZ late?According to online employee forums..... it's leaky panoramic sun-roofs!I thought this would bite Ford. Even though nobody had experience with such a huge sliding glass roof (it's basically most of the roof and slides rearward over the rear window!) inside Ford or outside Ford, the decision was made to tool up for production without any prototypes.Yeah.... :PI kept "joking" that the wind would catch the inclined, open sunroof and make this thing a nightmare, including the possibility of it ripping off at high speed.... and almost certainly a source of incredible noise at high speed. So far, that hasn't been discussed.But it leaks.Why? I don't know.... but it's a huge expanse of glass that has to closely fit a welded steel assembly (the roof).Bummer.... I feel sorry for the sunroof guy. He's a good, experienced guy and the full weight of Ford management is probably coming down on his head.... and demanding daily updates. :P Probably coming down on the roof guy too.... can't remember who that was now....Rob
