Potentially bad news; when ours started getting quirky, delaying before engaging, it finally lost reverse too.

I 'sold' it to my son for $1.
The worst car I have ever owned and my first US car in 35 years- it is also my LAST.

I have the same car and had the same problem, when you pull down the head liner you will find the motor for the moon roof. i disconnected the motor so that i could analyze it. i found that the gears in the moon roof motor are made of plastic and most of the gear teeth were chewed off. i disconnected the wireing harness from the motor and left it unplugged, i then pushed the moon roof back into position and tightened the screws to the moon roof. That is the way i left it for the past 2 years, because i was not about to spend the money t fix the motor.
