It looks nice but REALLY sticks up. A powered lift gate could easily get damaged in a low ceiling environment (I even tested the resistance force and it would easily damage before stopping). Since I want a loaded model I am thinking of disconnecting the powered part of the liftgate to prevent an accidental opening in my low ceiling parking garage.
I suspect the flipper glass opened first as the liftgate opened.....perhaps the flipper glass was registered as "closed" but hadn't locked closed and as the liftgate opened the flipper glass flipped open fast and first causing the jam. Hence, it is a known problem which is why the powered liftgate is disabled if the vehicle knows the flipper glass is opened. New programming to stop the liftgate from opening further if flipper glass is detected open while liftgate opening is in process.
The spoiler and powered liftgate was my one concern when I first saw the new GC (I'm pretty good at seeing issues in things right away in general) and so will have to disconnect once I get mine.
The glass part of the liftgate closes easily. It doesn't require any force like my '05 WK. There is no doubt that I had it closed when I left my home.
I'm also positive my garage had nothing to do with this. If there was damage caused by my garage I would think there would be marks/scratches around the licence plate area ect... Also I've been using my rear camera to make sure I park in the same place every time. My garage is deep enough and tall enough to easily open my liftgate without worry.
I didn't hear from the dealer yesterday or today like I was expecting. I'm guessing that's bad news. I'm trying to be patient and not become a nuisance.
Day 3 in my loaner Impala totally blows!!
