Since the garage is not heated or cooled it needs to breathe and have airflow.
Yes, I'm aware. I get paid to go into houses and find these things. The attic of the living space was not insulated. Also, in any home the entire attic needs to have adequate airflow, not just above the garage. Few homes in this area have adequate ventilation and one builder (actually their roofing contractor) is currently installing roof ventilation totally wrong on their new homes. They are using passive roof vents adjacent to ridge vents on the same slopes. This can cause poor ventilation and moisture problems.

Cowboy, you may want to go to a development that Sumeer has built recently and just ask the residents for there experiences - if you see them outside on the weekends or evenings.
