So glad I found this thread. I've had my Yukon for 2 months and it's closed on me multiple times. Usually when loading something heavy (like a bag of mulch) where you need to get your feet in close to maintain balance. Size 13 shoes apparently not helping. Personally, I think there are 2 design flaws: 1. Hands-free closing: Why even have this enabled? It's awkward if not dangerous since it requires you to stand under the gate, which is then compounded by... 2. No time delay when closing: Even using the liftgate button, I've almost knocked my head a few times because it's so instant. My '15 Durango has a warning beep and a small delay. Much safer setup. I'm nitpicking here BTW, I do love this truck!
