As mentioned earlier in the thread, the issue is not the auto-lift mechanism, it is the latch release mechanism that is the same for all the vans. There is no mechanical link between the button on the liftgate and the latch. The button fails in cold weather (part numbers are different between trims due to the rear camera, not due to the lift mechanism).Charlie,
My 2016 SE does not come with an auto open and close tailgate. We have to open it manually, I am not sure I need to do that.
Also, the TSB has been updated to include all 4th gen vans (through MY 2017).
