windows up top down!

Has anyone had any issues with keeping the windows up with the top down? We've only had the car for two months and didn't want to damage anything.

When you press the button to raise or lower the top, all 4 windows automatically go down.

You are good man! The windows go down when you hit the down button. UP it does not matter. You can drive with them up or down..... I have not heard any issues with window position.

Windows do automatically go back down if they are up when you start to put the to put the top back up. Driving with the windows up and top down will not hurt anything.

No. Just no.

If the top is down the windows should be down.

He didn't ask for opinions on what you think about driving with the windows up and top down, all he asked is if it would hurt the car. Show some respect !

I don't understand why people do that, do they think they are being helpful or just trying to be funny? It's not a good thing either way especially towards a new member.

Jfoster,

Everything with your Camaro should be fine. However, if any issues do arise, please let me know and I'll see how I can assist.

Happy driving,

He got his answer so a little levity is not a bad thing especially nowadays. If someone gets ridiculous and nasty then that is a different story. Now sticking to the question at hand, no it will not hurt the vehicle physically, mentally is a different story all together.

Its all good....I agree it looks bad, but at 42 yrs old I'm at that point I could care less and at 70 mph I would rather be able carry on a conversation and be comfortable than look cool.

I'm probably the only person that wears a 3/4 open face helmet on a HD Roadking over the half helmets because its the most comfortable helmet I've had.

I run with the windows and wind diffuser up on the freeway. Much quieter, easier to talk and listen to music and much less wind. In this mode the a/c and or heater work much more efficiently too. When the windows are down you can just lift the two rear window controls and all 4 windows will go up automatically. The wind diffuser makes a big difference. Could GAS what others think about windows up or down. Do what you like.
