Autobytel Auto Extras: Ford Flex Power Tailgate Safety

Power tailgates are becoming more and more common in vehicles. With a push of a button on the tailgate or keyfob, the tailgate raises and lowers. This makes it convenient if your hands are full, but some people are wondering if power tailgates are safe. Consider you're closing the tailgate and have a small child in the way, what would happen? Ford has devised a solution to this with a feature on their 2013 Flex. Autobytel's Road Test Editor, Benjamin Hunting, gives us a demonstration.
