The rear lift gate support (prop) attaching bolts may break, causing the lift gate to fall unexpectedly. Thorough inspection of the bolts is required; if the support washers are loose, the supports need to be replaced.

    The bolt attaching the rear power liftgate to the vehicle sheared off when opening. Cannot find a replacement bolt. Mopar site has wrong bolt listed.

    Power lift gate doesn't stay open. I've used the keyless remote and it beeps three times, opens fully and then slams shut. I've pressed the in cabin button by the rear view mirror and it opens fully and drops hard shut. I've tried manually opening liftgate too. I have to keep my arms raised to hold it open or else I'm in for a headache. Loading groceries is a problem. Thinking its the gas shock struts but not 100%...not looking forward to big dealership repair cost. Is his a recall problem?
