    Tailgate door becomes stuck from time to time. After someone slammed my door a little too hard, something came loose inside and I can hear it rattling inside. Immediately afterwards, when trying to open the rear tailgate, it felt like the latch would not release, even when door was unlocked and I was fully engaging the door handle. The knob that moves up and down is also at a sharp angle.

    Some days the rear door releases, some days it doesn't.

    Driver side door lock (with key)failed, have not fixed yet. Also passenger rear window switch only worked in down mode, temporarily disconnected switch to avoid being stuck w/ open window. Bypassed switch to get it back up.
