Default Does this happen to anyone else?

I let down my vert top, and hold the button an extra two secs to 'seat' the top. There's always an extra inch for the top to compress into, and that makes a big difference in rear viewing.

Not a Vert but I took out the rear seat headrests because nobody ever sits in the back and it made a huge difference in the rear outlook. The 2001-2202 cruisers had bigger rear headrests that the later models.

I did that as well. And yes, it makes a BIG difference in what you can see out the back window.

I had to do that with my lebaron vert, and the vw vert would ding untill the top is locked in the lowest possible position.

And crewzin. Do you know something we don't? 2202. I mean no complaint if the do continue making the cruiser that long.

Just messing with you.

Thumbs up Re: Does this happen to anyone else?

"Ditto', the extra couple of seconds to fully set the top down.
