Closing the Liftgate

Lower the liftgate lid and press down until it locks. Always check it is secure by pulling on the handle.

Liftgate lock and the liftgate may not work if frozen shut due to moisture and freezing conditions.


Always close the liftgate before driving. Do not grab or hold on to the liftgate support struts or they may be damaged. Deformation of the liftgate support struts may result in vehicle damage and personal injury.

If the liftgate is partially or totally latched and the person cannot get out, serious injury or death may occur due to lack of ventilation, exhaust fumes, and rapid heat build-up, or due to exposure to cold weather conditions. The cargo area is also a very dangerous location in the event of a collision because it is part of the vehicle’s crush zone.
