Mine makes more noise going through the motions of opening the center vent than it does just sliding. But it's always been the same since it rolled off the truck.

I'm with you on keeping it inside. I never understand keeping ones garage full of junk and parking a $45,000.00 car out in the elements. Mine stays indoors unless it's being used. Which is especially important here in Florida. But then again my garage is 24' wide and 30' long so I can keep junk, cars, garden tiller, lawn tractor, wood working tools and a 4x6 utility trailer in mine and still walk around everything.
