The lift gate on my vehicle would not lift all the way in late in 2005 and would only lift up to 1/4 of its actual opening. While on the interstate recently, it completely fell off flying into traffic.

Rear hatch (tailgate) window will release while driving without warning. This has happened on numerous occasions. When this occurs, all the interior lights come on, which can be quite dangerous at night. In addition, items can fall out of the unsecured rear hatch (tailgate) window. I have tried lubricating the mechanism, as well as checking regularly that it is secured, but there has been no improvement.
