Forgive me if this has been discussed before but I'm trying to find out if the Ascent can be driven with the liftgate partially open while driving. I used to do this a lot with my 2010 Forester when I was transporting something that didn't quite fit in the cargo area. I would simply tie down the liftgate and drive without incident.

Not so with the Ascent. Yesterday I tried that when I was trying to drive home with a large package from Costco. I tied down the liftgate but the open liftgate alarm sounded incessantly when the car was in motion. I looked up in the owner's manual how to stop it, but couldn't find anything other than don't drive with the liftgate open.

Can this be done? Anyone try it?

I got to try it first! I backed it down my driveway a short distant with the lift gate open and no alarms sounded when I had a carabiner in the latch
