Poll: Does your Sunroof leak?

Okay, there has been a good bit of talk about the issue of the Panoramic Sunroof becoming virtually, Ford's rainroof. There's no real way of knowing how pervasive this problem is, so this poll should help us see just how many "do leak" in our group of owners.
Please, to add validity to this poll, do not vote "Yes my sunroof leaks" unless you yourself own a truck with the panoramic sunroof that leaks. In other words, don't vote for your buddy's truck, or someone you heard of who has a leaker if yours doesn't.

Have had my truck since late October(10,600 miles), and we have had tons of snow/rain since Oct, and not one leak on mine.

Never been through an auto car wash, been hand washed every time.

Mine hasn't leaked, but with 2500 miles and 6 months of sitting in the garage I'm not a good person to ask. My son's 2016 F150 (same cab) does leak, but I can't vote for him as this poll is for "our" Super Duty trucks.
I've never had it though a car wash, only bucket washed at home.

Mine has been through rainstorms, snow, sleet, sleet, and several car washes. So far so good. It does go in a garage at night, but it has also been sitting out in major storm rain.

One issue I can think on why some sunroofs may leak is from drive through car washes. I do not take mine through one because that high pressure jet stream of water being so close to the roof of the truck is not a good combo. These trucks are very tall from factory and most car washes were not designed for trucks that tall, just something to consider. Mine personally has never leaked but I have also never taken it though a drive through car wash.

No leaks on mine so far. I don't go through car washes, just hand wash. No pressure washes either.

I've been through a couple of high pressure car washes so far with my '17 Platinum Super Duty F250 with no leaks so far.

This kind of bring back the days of the 3rd brake light leaks.

This is a very good point. it is like any pressure washer, the closer you have that water, the more potential for damage. To me, this would explain why the trucks leak and the corvettes and other luxury cars don't, because that pressured water isn't as close to their moonroofs.

6 months.
7000 miles.
No leaks.

I don't use car washes, though.
They put too many swirls in the paint.

Mine has been through some heavy rains with severe wind and still no issues. Only hand wash though, doesnt surprise me or bother me that they leak when exposed to high pressure water.

Had mine since December no leaks, but I also have not been through any car washes, only at home by hand.
