Mine has the electric motor to open the hatch and have not had any issues in 19 months. Every once in a while the foot sensor fails and you have to try 2 or 3 times, but in general works well. Really handy when your hands are full!

If i's under warranty, take it to the dealer.

I have had the same problem as Cory. If I stick a finger or two up into the latch mechanism and move it--sort of open and close--then it works normally again for some time. I'm guessing it just needs some lubrication but haven't gotten around to spraying a bit of WD-40 in there yet. It's definitely annoying when it happens, usually with arms full of something or other.

Turns out mine needed a new latch assembly; $159 for the part, $110 for labor. A cool $269 out of my pocket because out of warranty.
