I haven't had that specific scenario. I did however try to kick the road ice / sludge build up on the left rear wheel well just behind the wheel on the LRDS - the rear hatch opened. Tried a couple of more times and it happened each time. After that I can't reproduce it. Later my wife told be a similar story.

I'm with all of you when you say "service can't reproduce it, so - no problem exists." I cannot get the service or the dealer to give a ****.
LR sent me a quality survey after my last service visit. I didn't mince words. I'm fed-up. No one at LR seems to care that they put out a possibly dangerous product riddled with problems that they can't or won't fix.

it's happened 3 more times within same week....each time during a now this is more frequent
I got out of the car, closed the door, touch the sensor on the handle to lock the car and as I walk away - the lift gate opens half way....
It wouldn't go back right away....I had to close and open it a few times before it finally closed and didn't open on its own. Ridiculous

I have a 2018 LR Discovery Sport and the mind of it's own tailgate started on me yesterday. First when leaving work, again at home, and this morning getting gasoline. I was able to shut it from inside with the dash panel switch. It would not let you close it from the outside and would open and close partially on it's own multiple times. I will try the walking away with the key fob trick next. I still do not like having the tailgate open on it's own.
