Consequence:
      If the open liftgate unexpectedly falls, it may strike a person, increasing their risk of injury.
Remedy:
      GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the power liftgate actuator motor control unit so that the motor will prevent the rapid closing of the lift gate, free of charge.
