    Liftgate issue

    My liftgate unexpectedly closed hard on me today, crushing me in the process.
    I was finally able to escape but now the door is malfunctioning. It opens, then partially opens and closes twice, then closes permanently.
    First of all, why doesn’t the door have a safety feature to prevent crush injuries? The door did not stop when it hit me and injured my back. Thankfully I got it to release, but this is really dangerous.
    Second, any ideas on how to fix the liftgate so it works again?

    By "liftgate", do you mean the trunk lid? If not, are you in the right forum?
