Rear Hatch

Anyone experience the rear hatch not fully opening? Twice so far my hatch hasn’t fully extended upwards when opened. First time it opened about half way and stopped. Second time a little less than half way. Just curious if someone else experienced the same?

@ST-Princess is correct you can adjust it to any height you want. Just left the gate to the desired height then press and hold the tailgate button until you hear a beep. Then the new height is set.

Understood that this is a feature. My scenario is a little different though. It has always been set to fully extend which is what I want. The two times it didn’t fully extend the cargo area wasn’t accessible. Luckily It has only happened those two times. Good to know that this is a option though.

perhaps you hit the hatch button on the key fob by accident while it was opening?

Mine does this intermittently as well

I have had this happen to me as well. Only opens about half way at random times? Nice to know there is a setting feature for the rear hatch. Gonna reset it and hopefully that solves the problem....

I used the set feature on the rear hatch (set to the highest setting) and so far so good...haven't had a halfway stop since....
