Do any XT have the optional feature of a Moon roof/Sunroof? Ive been shopping around and it doesn't look like it. Ive been looking for an 2004-2006 XT. Do you guys know of any years that they do come with them?

In 04 the XT premium (leather seats, moonroof) was only available with an automatic. In 05 the XT premium added a manual transmission, and the driver seat is power.
In 06 it became the XT Limited. You could get it in MT and AT.

A big reason why I got an 05 was because I wanted an MT and a moonroof and I liked the 03-05 front end. The limited me to finding an 05 XT premium.

Yep, all XTs come with a moonroof with the exception of the '04 5MT. None come with sunroofs.

2005 XTs came in standard and premium packages. You could get an AT or MT XT with or without a moonroof. You could also get an 04 XT AT without a moonroof and it came with cloth interior.

Yup.. 04XT.. My moonroof glass cracked last year.. out of warranty.. couple hundred bucks. Last week.. moonroof motor is going out. And I haven't used the moonroof too much over the years either. IMHO.. get a forester without moonroof. It's a great car for 6 years old.

I held out for an XT premium just for the moonroof. I love it and if it is not raining out it is being used.

What is the difference between a moonroof and a sunroof?

The words are pretty much interchangable, but I've always though of it as this:

sunroof- Solid panel you can't see out of that opens (2001 2.5RS)
moonroof- glass panel that opens. (Forester Style)

Cannot open the sunroof in rain - can slide the shade back and enjoy the moonroof in rain :)
Not sure - but I dont think anyone makes a sunroof anymore..
