I was told when I got the car that it would have the power lift gate, but I have never been able to work it, so I assumed I didn't, but when I read this thread, I thought maybe I did and was doing it wrong. I didn't pay extra for any option to include it, so I bet I don't have it. This actually makes me feel better.
The remote thing is so weird. I used it several times on Saturday (I was in chilly upstate NY, so I used it while doing errands), then on Sunday, I couldn't get it to work, and it hasn't worked since. I tried checking and unchecking the box for remote start in settings thinking maybe that would reset it. Bummer. I love that feature.
I think I will pop in to the Nissan place when I am nearby, but I am sure, just like computer issues, the minute I am there it will work, lol.
Thanks for the feedback.
