Hatch back will not remain in the open position.
Hello, the liftgate not staying open is a common concern on all vehicles with a liftgate or hatchback. The liftgate is held open by two gas charged struts, one on each side. The struts lose pressure over time and become weak. The result is that they are not able to keep the tailgate in the open position. The two struts need to be replaced to restore proper operation of the liftgate. You may need to enlist the help of a mechanic to inspect your door.
