I have a appointment with the local dealer to have the recall item repaired. I have a friend that had problems with his struts and they replaced them for him. He was told that not all 2010 vehicles have the problem. He did say in cold weather (which we have been having in Connecticut) the thumping noise is more noticeable.
#126 of 146 2010 SRX Tailgate Issue
Jan 02, 2011 (2:15 pm)
Just recently I have been having problems with the tailgate on my 2010 SRX. I had the tailgate open and was about to load some luggage in the vehicle when the tailgate went into a free fall striking me on the side of my head. The speed at which it lowered was faster than the normal close speed. I had the key fob in my jeans and I don't believe I had caused the tailgate to lower. Several days later I was shopping and was returning to my car with my purchases and noriced the tailgate was up when I exited the store. I thought this was strange as the store was some distance from where I parked my car. The same thing happened again about a 1/2 hour later at another parking lot. This time the car was parked a much greater distance from the store. Has anyone experienced this type problem? Again, the key fob was in my coat chest pocket and I don't believe I had hit it in any way. Do you think the key fob is overly sensitive?

I have not been hit on the head by the lift gate yet, but I will say that last week I came out to my SRX and found the lift gate open. Luckily, it was just outside of my residence, so I was not overly concerned.
I see they have dicontinued production on the 2.8 Turbo, I can only assume this is because of issues.

I am wondering has this issue been corrected? I am having this problem and my dealer can not duplicate it.

I took my SRX to the dealer at the recommendation of GM. I filed a claim with GM and they needed to have a dealer look at the vehicle to see if there are any mechanical issues. The dealer could not replicate the problem (hatch has worked fine except for the one instance of it falling). They took pictures of the tailgate as requested and sent to GM. Problem has not been resolved as yet. Oh by the way.. there is another recall on my SRX according to the dealer. Will schedule that repair next week.

I have the same problem as you. My dealer could not figure it out either. Did you ever find out how to do it?
