Q: How does the tailgate work?

asked by on December 15, 2015

How does the tailgate work?

The tailgate on the vehicle works much like a door does. The key can lock it and unlock it, and lifting the handle will allow it to open.

Tip

The tailgate is hinged at the bottom, so when it opens the person opening it will support some of its weight.
