Rear hatch closes by itself. Dealer acknowledges problem but will not replace because it was not reported while still in warranty.the support arms are not strong enough to support the hatch.they have been discontinued and have been replaced with stronger ones.the hatch comes down without warning and could cause injury such as smash hands or fingers of children especially.
