Convertible Top Problems

Just wondering if anyone else is having as many problems with their convertible top as I am.

Started off as horrible wind noise coming from the driver's side, could hardly hear over the radio. So the top was replaced completely...thank God I'm still under warranty!

So I'm driving today and notice a loud sound of wind coming from the passenger side. I can see the top poaching out in the side view mirror as I drove. When I pulled over to inspect th top, you can clearly see the adhesive has completely detached from the top!

Are these normal problems?? I'm starting to feel as if I made a mistake buying this convertible!

Well, it's definitely happened to me. And to add insult to injury, after my top was repaired, I can no longer let the back window down on the driver's side..LOL...and the dealer is too busy to talk to me to schedule an appointment...I've left my number several times with no call backs...go figure!
