Re: Tailgate Opens, Closes Automatically Once Fully Opened

Unfortunately, no warranty 55,000 miles. The door does stop if it detects an object (usually my head), but it take a significant amount of force to stop it.

Dog/Cargo Divider

Can anyone recommend a dog/cargo vertical divider for behind the back seats? I don't think Jeep makes one specific for the 2011 GC, but does anyone know of one that works well? Thanks!

They told me that they would not replace the seat if they couldn't get the noise to replicate. Basically your SOL if it doesn't replicate the sound while we have it. It is really frustrating me!
