Question Tailgate fail to shut

When closing the electric-powered tailgate, it does not shut properly and the tailgate-open warning comes off on the instrument panel. It is like gently closing the door but the door is only half way in. It does not happen every time, but frequent enough to be annoying (once every two-three days).

I had it checked at the dealer but the dealer said they havenít found the problem yet. My dealer is nice enough to lend me a 2014 528i-xdrive for free while my X3 is being checked. Two days have passed. Although I am satisfied with the loaner, I still want my X3 back as soon as possible.

Does anyone have similar problem? My 2014 X3 28i is only 2 months old and mileage is 3,000.

Tailgate fail to shut

I do not have that issue at all. Only time when it didn't close was due to me stuffing so much crap into the trunk that it couldn't close lol. Does your trunk door "slam" when it's almost closed?

Yes it slams evey time. I even wander if it slams too hard and the door bounce out?

The only time that I had that problem was when I tried to lock my X3 when there was a key fob in it. In that situation you will get 3 beeps, and the tailgate will reopen.
