Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The power rear hatch has failed to latch twice in ours since it was new last fall.  It goes down but then right back up.  Must be closed manually and then it works fine.  Anybody else have this problem with theirs?

This was happening more frequently as of late so I took it to the dealer. Service manager found one of the rubber bumpers missing. Ordered new ones, installed and problem all but gone. Has only happened once since in last two months.

Latch has gone bad,should still be under warintie,dealer should replace it,if bought new.

make sure nothing is blocking the hatch clear everywhere mine did it because I ha something in way of sensors...worth a try..

Thanks, CyndiLou, yes, that was the first place I looked. Even checked trim fit and found nothing. There was a rubber bumper donut missing and dealer replaced both of them and the problem has now all but gone away. Still now and then but only a couple of times/year. I can actually live with that as long as I don't put the garage door down on the hatch by accident!
