tailgate flopping open
I have a 2011 Cadillac Escalade EXT and the tailgate has flopped open 4 times while I was driving. I'm sure the tailgate was completely shut. The last time it flopped open it got lodged into my bike rack that is mounted in the receiver hitch. Any ideas?

Re: tailgate flopping open
I have a ext as well and have never had this problem. Do your doors lock at speed or when going from park to drive? If they don't I would go into the settings and change it so they do, I would think with it locked it would not be able to pop open.
