    lift gate shuuders and reverses/locks

    Just bought a 2010 SRX, and the lift gate gets about 2/3 of the way open, shudders with a clacking noise and then either continues on up or reverses and locks. I took it to the dealer this morning and of course it worked perfectly. The only way he could get it to do this was to put slight pressure on the gate up. If he pressed down on it, it worked fine. My wife has had the problem and it was always late in the day when it was hotter outside. I don't know if the temperature is the difference, or if the car just won't missbehave at the dealer.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    The service dept. didn't do anything? They should have at least lubed the rear hatch struts. This should be done on a regular basis. A good lithium grease will do wonders. This one is ideal.

    I have got to endorse 'sube', that a little lubrication might be all that is required; the reversing is obviously a safety feature (and the hatch is occasionally binding).

    They finally fixed it with what they called a recallibration. They also said if it gets hit hard, it may do it again. Sounds unusual, but it now at least is working right, and they said they replaced no parts.
