I have a similar strategy, mine works fine for full open/close, the last time I tried to use vent I had issues but was lucky to get it eventually closed myself using just the buttons, then learned about the history of issues the sunroof has, and have been scared to vent ever since. I rarely use it full open/close either now, but do on occasion as I never heard of one having the fatal break happen unless you play with the vent position. I will start to keep the sunshade open, even in the Summer, and just deal with a hotter car when I enter it if that is a theory to increase the life of the sunroof.
