    Are you kidding me, what kind of an engineer designs a cargo area that slants toward the tailgate? I bought a 2018 Tahoe about 2 months ago, and when the 3rd row is folded down, the cargo area pitches to the tailgate. So when we go to the grocery store, the bags slide toward the back and spill out when I open the tailgate. I should mention, this doesn't only happen with groceries, everything that is put back there slides toward the rear. I suppose I could buy a WeatherTech cargo liner that would probably help, but there are times I need to use the 3rd row, and I really don't feel like taking the liner in and out all the time. Plus, I am not always at home where I could put the liner in the garage when I need to use the third row, so now I would have the problem of what do I do with the liner now that I raised the seats. When I pointed the slant out to the dealer, I was told that it is normal. Is the dealer correct, is this normal, or has anyone had their dealer resolve this problem?

    I also bought a 2018 tahoe and mine is this way too.

    I removed the 3rd row and storage area and all is well. Sad that I spent the money for the 3rd row, but...

    this is when I open the rear window and grab the stuff by the hatch first, then open the hatch, even if it's not pitched unless you hit the brakes real good before parking stuff will usually be thrown at the back hatch.

    You guys don't have a factory cargo net, or the mounting points for one? I think that would stop the stuff from falling out when you pop the hatch open.

    My car came with a net that installs right at the hatch with mounting points on each side, I have a feeling that would stop your problem. I have a factory rubber mat, and that also keeps things from sliding.

    Stuff slides underneath the cargo net. There is no way to secure the net at the bottom to keep things from sliding underneath it.

    Put the stuff in the net. That's why it's shaped like a poutch.

    I use a multi sectional grocery organizer which keeps bags from rolling around. Does not matter if it is the Suburban or a sedan, groceries in these plastic bags just move around or loose their contents on the ride home.
