Although here in Seattle there are few opportunities to use my sunroof, on the rare occasion I do it tilts up and down easily, but has a heck of a time closing from the full-open position. Could it possibly just need some lubrication, or is there something else? It opens just fine, it just has a tough time closing.

Lubricate the Sucker.

Mine was kinda of slow and chunky when trying to close, tilt was also, Lubricated it with some bearing grease, and that sucker moves smooth now.

Lubricated the track, and the areas where I could see the tilt parts moving.

I'm sure there is some better grease to use, I just used what I had lying around. Plus I figured it should work well since its used for bearings.
