Tailgate height when open

Thread starter #1
As I continue to ponder buying my first SUV/crossover/tall vehicle or whatever you want to call it, I happened to think: Will the tailgate of an Encore clear my garage door if I open it fully in my garage? I just measured the distance and I've got about 7 1/2 feet. The only tailgate vehicle that I've ever parked in there was an '04 Malibu Maxx hatchback, which was no problem, but the Encore sits up a lot higher. A dumb question, perhaps, but any advice is appreciated.

You should not have any problem with the Encore.
I have just checked my garage door: 207 centimeters or 6.79 feet or 6 feet 9 1/2 ".
I can open the tailgate and still have about 3 centimeters left, that's well over 1 inch.
The car would be 6 feet 8 inches with its tailgate open. The fact that mine is called a Mokka X instead of Encore does not matter. Both the Buick and it's European Opel/Vauxhall cousins share the same bodywork and are built in the same GM factory.
