Default Convertible Top instable

When driving with the top up and windows down my wife claims the back window practiably shakes right out of the top when doing freeway speeds. The service manager at my local dealer said he has never had that complaint. I told my wife to put the window up, she said but my Volvo never did that.

Welcome to the forum! My name is Deysha with Ford Service. Was your dealer able to look at/diagnose your vehicle?

No they said it was a normal amount of movement, they rested it against another on the lot.

I don't know if your year has a glass window in the rear or a plastic one. I heard the plastic ones shake more than the glass ones due to less weight.

Lets see.....my 00, 07, 02, and 08 verts all did the same at highway speeds. They all have glass... Never have seen any damage from the movement. With the vert, I find that I very rarely drive it with the top up/windows down any more. Top down except for rain....then the a/c is on.
