Summary of Complaint

I HAD NOTICED THAT ON MY 2005 CHEVY TAHOE I WAS NOT ABLE TO OPEN THE TAILGATE IT SEEMED TO BE LOCKED, I TRIED TO UNLOCK IT MANUALLY AND IT WOULD NOT UNLOCK FROM DRIVER DOOR WHEN YOU HIT TO UNLOCK EVERYTHING MANUALLY. I ALSO CANNOT PUSH THE BUTTON AND OPEN THE GLASS MANUALLY EITHER. NOR CAN I OPEN IT FROM CRAWLING INSIDE THE TRUCK TO TRY TO PUSH THE TAILGATE OPEN. SO IF THERE WAS A ACCIDENT THERE SEEMS TO BE NO WAY OF GETTING OUT THROUGH THE BACK ENTRANCE WHICH IS SCARY. I HAVE TRIED MULTIPLE TIMES TO OPEN IT AND IT WILL NOT OPEN, I CANNOT FOR ANY REASON USE THE BACK TAILGATE ANYMORE WHICH I FIND A INCONVENIENCE AND WAS ONE OF THE REASONS I BOUGHT THE TRUCK IN THE FIRST PLACE. *TR
