#1 of 6 Tailgate Rod Failure
May 15, 2011 (4:56 am)
All off a sudden my power tailgate won't stay open. After opening it, it immediately begins a slow close. Before I call for an appointment, is there an adjustment to restore the hydraulic pressure on the rods? I haven't found anything mentioned in the manual and I can't an adjustment on the rods but want to check before I take the time to bring it in.

Finally got to take it in. It seems the inside button is stuck a tad in the up position. Well see, it goes back in next week to have the full ceiling console replaced.

Ceiling console was replaced. No change, wasn't the problem, out of stock on the tailgate pistons and will have to bring it back in end of the week.

Did you know that there's an issue about General Motors? Yes, in the news they mentioned that General Motors is dealing with a class-action suit from users of 2007 and 2008 Impalas. The suit claims that a rear suspension flaw in the vehicles causes wheels to wear tread too early. GM dealt with the matter in 2008 in regards to Impalas sold as police cars. They did not, however, addressed the problem with regards to consumer-owned cars. General Motors could hand out millions if the suit works. Here is the proof: link title
