Liftgate off centre
I've owned the JGC for almost a year now. Just recently I've noticed the auto liftgate making metal on metal noise when it closes. There was only one obvious place the noise could come from, the latching mechanism. But what I've also noticed is that the whole liftgate is off centre, ie the gap on the right is much smaller than the gap on the left, perhaps a good 4mm difference. I've read about building quality issues on this forum, and I've noticed early on in owner ship that the front doors stick out slightly more than the rear doors. I've just learned to accept this, but this is the first time I've noticed the liftgate. I was driving around the shopping centre car park yesterday and just so happened to have parked next to another JGC. I took a quick look at IT's liftgate and noticed it was slightly off centre too, though not as severe.
I was just wondering, is this something that happens over time or is it a build quality issue.
IRT the latch, upon closer inspection I've noticed the latch doesn't move very freely, I think I'll have to grease it up a bit more.
