    It all started when I asked my Hyundai Dealership that we would like to have a Power Lift Tailgate fitted to our 2013 Hyundai Santa-Fe Highlander. They stated our model did not have that option in the Main Wiring Harness and it could not be fitted. When I left there I thought I would try to find an aftermarket unit to fit our SUV, eventually Autoease lift kit helped us out but the English Translation in our eyes needs attention straight away.

    Two things.
    1. If you are thinking of buying this product I can truly say their before and during Installation help is Outstanding and they have given this product a three year Warranty.
    2. The second thing is don’t think just buy it.

    Regards,

    Garry and Pam Tustian.

    Thank you very much for sending the replacement tailgate kit for my Ford Edge. I was away for most of last week, but installed all the new parts today and everything now works perfectly.

    I appreciate your excellent customer service and prompt communications. Sending the entire new assembly was the answer. I decided to remove all parts and use everything from the new kit. The only thing I could see that was different was the control box that was printed in English and had a slightly different unit number on it.

    I will be travelling Sunday through Wednesday, this week. Please send me information regarding sending the old unit back to you and I will ship it out by the end of the week.

    Again, thanks for the wonderful service and what I believe will be an excellent addition to my Ford Edge. This is something that my wife has wanted for a long time, and I am very pleased that I found your product and am happy to recommend your company to others.

    In this case the expression fits — Happy Wife = Happy Life.

    Thank you for making such a great product. This was installed on my Chevy Trax in about 3 hours at a local shop who did not do it before. There were no issues or modifications due to problems. We actually were even able to place the interior cabin gate button in a more convenient location for arms reach. The liftgate functions as advertised and is not too fast or slow. Super convenient by means of activating it thru your original keyfob remote by pressing unlock 3x, interior button, trunk button under licence plate and interor trunk button. This makes car life easier for those carrying multiple things and or wrist issues.

    I give this 5 stars due to the fast shipping time (days not weeks+ from China), prompt replies and function. The only two issues I have may be vehicle specific due to wiring, maybe /maybe not. It is that the interior release button illuminates for me only when my left blinker activates otherwise I cant see the button in the dark. Also, there is beeping when the door opens and closes, slightly annoying, I simply disconnected the beep buzzer.

    I would definitely recommend.

    My wife loves her bmw X3 (2011 model) but found the tailgate heavy to open and close. Getting an automatic lifter from BMW would have been horrendously expensive so when I by chance saw the Autoease Lifter I was immediately interested. My local independent BMW specialist had a look at the website and agreed to do the fitting as an experiment if I bought the kit. It is always a worry buying from the other side of the world but knowing that most Chinese equipment is now top quality I decided to take the chance. When the kit arrived I was immediately impressed with the quality, as was the garage who would be fitting it. Fitting was straight forward and they did a superb job of installing the switches and concealing the wiring. They also made a short video of the fitting to put on their website! My wife loves being able to walk across the supermarket car park watching the tailgate rise as she approaches with her trolley! A great value addition to an already nice car.
    All the best, Peter

    The person who installed the unit for VW Touareg power tailgate kit, is an audio installer for the past 15 years and worked mostly with German cars.

    1) The installation took three and half hours.
    2) Removing and reinstallation of the tailgate panel was a breeze.
    3) Strut installation was easy except for the round gourmet / rubber O-ring attached to wire was difficult to insert on a small oval shape hole.
    4) Removing the rubber gourmet between tailgate and body was challenging. The plastic holder on both ends of the rubber gourmet are brittle and very hard to pry open and detach from the tailgate and body, too much force could damage a tooth and will no longer be able install on its original finish.
    5) But the most challenging was inserting the power cable and latch motor cable on the connecting rubber gourmet between the tailgate and body. The connectors were bulky and numerous, and the wires bundle together is bigger than the gourmet can accommodate. So, had to insert the power cable first applying a lot of WD 40 and slowly pulling it. Then attached a string on the end of Latch cable and applied a lot of WD 40 and similarly slower since it has become very tight. This took an hour to complete the passage of the connectors and cables altogether, we did not want to stretch the rubber gourmet’s body out of proportion. Next use thinner wires!
    6) We installed the ECU Control Box further back and beside the rear plate bulb holder, if we followed the suggested location, the foam inside of the tailgate’s plastic panel will squeeze and damage the connectors on the Box.
    7) The Latch Motor had to be installed in another location. The double adhesive tape is not sturdy enough to contain it movement based on the suggested location, drilling a hole was not an option since the muffler is right below. We installed the motor at the heavy plastic molding beside the spare tire and drilled three holes to fasten the motor. The plastic molding was fastened on the body to begin with, so it was sturdy to hold the motor in its place.
    8) Power wire passed thru the upper doors roof frame and was easy to do, no need to dissemble the molding.
    9) Once completed and installed all the connections, the system worked immediately. The key fob worked by pressing the button once and long until you hear three beeps, tailgate button lit and single short press worked perfectly and the interior button work similarly thru a short pull.
    10) Observations:
    a) Note the wires are too long such as the power cable, strut cable and latch motor, looked messy and bulky in bundling them together.
    b) The Gate Button switch is flimsy, brittle and has a cheap finish may need to replace soonest it may break anytime.
    c) The struts are difficult or very hard to pull-down in order to adjust to its desired opening, I had to pull thru the body of the tailgate instead of panel as the latter may tear apart from the body.
    d) The opening and closing process are slow compared to my other car.
    e) I have not installed the foot sensor, would like to observed the tailgate for a month before installation.

    Thank you
    Tomo

    They make a quality kit that despite the confusing installation instructions due to the translation into English, was easy to install. I had many questions prior to doing the install and they were always answered quickly by Tao the Sales Manager.
    I also installed the foot sensor which also was very easy.
    It would make sense for the company to redo all installation instructions into clear and proper English. Also what helped my a lot was watching the different youtube videos on the various installs, even though there wasn’t a specific one about my install a Kia Sorento the process is mostly the same and really helped. The videos were more help than the printed instructions.
    I highly recommend them for a easy to install quality kit and excellent customer service.
    thanks

    Customer service is fantastic! High OEM quality parts. I installed in 2018 Jeep Compass. The only thing I can see that needs attention is the install manual needs to be clearer and a little more detail. Overall very happy and Im interested in the foot control option.

  8. Frank K

    I have great news! I shaved the small plastic ridge off my left strut (gray connectors) and the power and control plugs snapped firmly in place. I reset the system by manual closing the hatch, and it works perfectly!

    I was able to reinstall the rubber bumper that I pulled out of the latch and the hatch still opens and closes without a hitch. I was also able to successfully test opening and closing the hatch without reinstalling the plastic trim on the hatch.

    Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to obtain newer version control box and for sticking with me throughout this project. Your prompt responses to my emails and your continued assurances that we would solve this problem were greatly appreciated. Also, thank you for sending the replacement equipment to me expedited mail so that I could compete the project sooner.

    It has been a real pleasure working with you on this project, and I sincerely wish you and your company continued success. I will be making a post on the tesla forum attesting to the high quality of your product and the outstanding support you provided me throughout this project.

    Your friend in Florida,

    Does this work for Holden TRAX LS,

    • Autoease Technology

      Hi Patricia, we have one last kit in stock for Holden Trax, please order online.

  17. Jane Hart

    I have waited a few months before reviewing to see how well it worked, I bought a kit for our Toyota CHR Hybrid because I missed having a powered tailgate, the customer service before we bought was fantastic answered every question and sent fitting instructions before we even ordered, payment was through PayPal so no worries there.
    We found an excellent auto electrician to fit it and it has been brilliant, delivery was within a couple of days and it is excellent quality. Everything works perfectly and we couldn’t be happier with it, I have also recommended it to a couple of friends and so has the electrician, don’t hesitate to buy if interested.

    Purchased for 2013 Toyota 4runner. Works. I read the included instructions as well as instructions I found online from an individual and became thoroughly familiar before starting. Inventory your parts before you start. They left out the mounting brackets for the new power struts and I had to notify them. They sent them right out and I had them 3 or 4 days later. While challenging it’s do-able for a advanced diy guy. I would say it might be overwhelming otherwise on a 4runner. Working straight through it’s probably a 4 hour job but a few problem area’s can quickly turn it into an all day job. The power cable that connects to the fuse box has a split ground wire that was supposed to connect in the same area to a ground point but after connecting and running to the back I found the ground wire was about 3 ft short so I had to take apart and move the ground connection rearward to have enough wire. Extra hour and a half. You need to be organized keeping up and possibly marking nuts and screws removed. The hardest part was fishing all the wires, 2 rear struts and 3 from drivers kick panel area, through the liftgate. 4runners have a power rear window and you also have to be sure you don’t obstruct. You will need to tightly tape your wire to fish and possibly spray some wd40 on it as well. Then get ready to push/pull till it finally, yes finally, finds a path through the small area. I got everything done but the liftgate fishing in one day and got tired and frustrated and came back after a good nights rest and finished fishing. Took another 1-1 1/2 hours tying up excess wires and putting everything back together. As I said it works nicely. I have contacted support with a small issue of the liftgate stopping about 12 inches short of closing. Takes a little push to finish closing but I’m hoping they can help with adjustment of that. Support has been A+ so far so I expect to get it resolved. 4 stars due to closing issue.

    • Autoease Technology

      Sorry for the late reply due to the national day holiday, please keep us updated of the kit performance closely. We will guarantee a happy ending.

  19. Colby Reeves

    5 stars now as closing issue was just a matter of adjusting the closing speed.
    Great customer service

    • Autoease Technology

      Thank you!

    Since the unit is now installed and working well, I thought I would write a few comments.
    A. The electric tailgate lift after-market kit is a great piece of equipment. It works as advertised and is a quality product. All the pieces in the kit were made well and heavy duty. I recommend the product highly and would award it 5 stars out of 5.
    B. The directions, however, do leave considerable want. The pictures don’t always match the car. It was handy to lay all the parts out prior to installation, just to figure out what was to be done. Fortunately, the person who I hired to install the lift appreciates good puzzles – as this was. I want to emphasize that the parts were all there. It just was that the car did not always match the directions and photos because Nissan must have changed later editions slightly. I would award the directions 3 starts out 5. A final bit of advice: it really helped to view the photos with the instructions on a large screen color monitor versus a print-out.
    Would I do it again? Absolutely. I am handicapped and the rear door was just too difficult to shut. The lift was needed!

    My wife who is a petite girl complained to me that her 2018 4Runner Limited rear door is really heavy to lift open and close, also she is short so hard to reach the door to close as well. I did a online search and I found a Youtube video showing Autoease automatic door closer in action and was impressed so I emailed Autoease and a person name Tao helped me in purchasing the correct auto door closer. When the auto door closer kit arrived, I was lucky that someone had put out a photo description online installing the kit which was really helpful in following the instructions provided, I am a technician which helped too. I ran into some issues with the actuator and contacted Tao and he immediately (and I mean immediately it arrived in a week and I live in Hawaii) sent me replacement actuators and when they arrived I installed them and now my wife is so happy no more struggling!!!

    I have to say that although Autoease is located in Asia, I will not hesitate to recommend them. Their vehicle auto door openers worked as described and I am a 100% satisfied customer with Autoease and especially Tao. He is a very excellent service oriented person!!!!

    Thank you so much, Tao!

    I recently installed Autoease power lift gate on my wife’s 2017 Ford Edge SEL. Took my time reading instructions. Installation was easy, a bit of work but easy. when all said and done, I couldn’t wait to try it. Well hatch would not open, it wanted to. I sent out an email to Autoease tech support, it was a late weekend night. First thing Monday morning USA east coast time I received a reply from Autoease. They gave me tips to try. First: to size up body piston brackets. Instructions stats 2017 – 2019 body brackets do not need to be replaced. That was not the case. I replaced brackets, hatch worked. Second: Front hatch button would close hatch but would not open hatch and three clicks on open key fob would not work. I wrote another email with these issues. Autoease responded quickly with and firmware update. They sent instructions on how to update control box. After update everything worked. I give Five Stars for Autoease sticking with me till these issues were resolved. My Wife loves it explicitly the foot sensor. The motors are quite. Hatch is tight, no water leaks. I mentioned Autoease to friends and coworkers.

    Thank You

    I can only recommend the product! I have a Volkswagen Beetle 2014, the tailgate is very large and heavy in terms of construction, which is why the tailgate initially slammed very loudly into the lock. Autoease then sent me another new control box (2nd generation) and transmitted new software. The tailgate closed much more quietly with the new control box. The quality of the electric tailgate is good. This whole construction is very valuable. If you own a VW Beetle, you should order and install the 2nd generation control box straight away. Then the electric tailgate works great as if it had already been installed by VW. Just much cheaper. VW in Germany charges around 2,000 euros for an electric tailgate. For the VW Beetle, an electric tailgate is not offered at all because the tailgate is so heavy. The support from Autoease is great, I can only recommend the electric tailgate offered here !!!! great

    I own a VW Golf Wagon that only had a manual tailgate, I have a disability that made it difficult to open the tailgate and unsafe when slippery. Saw your website, ordered and it was delivered on time. My VW Dealer installed it without any difficulty. It looks and works like original equipment. It was easy to adjust for speed and height of opening. The operating controls are easy to see and operate and best of all the original key fobs work as remote controls. My vehicle is now safer than ever and I would recommend your system to my best friend. Thank you

  25. Micah You

    I recently installed automatic liftgate for my wife’s 2018 Rav4 Hybrid. I am very happy with both the product and the customer support. The package arrived fairly quickly and the instruction were on a pdf email. I followed the instructions and supplemented with different Youtube videos of similar installations. A few main points that I learned:
    1) Tao is very prompt and helpful with any questions. He usually replied within a day.
    2) The whole installation took me around 4-5 hours. This was because of a few challenges I had with pulling the cable attached to the strut through to the proper area of the tailgate. I used a coathanger and taped it to the cable. (It took many attempts with trial and error).
    3) After I installed the liftgate opener, I had issues with locking the car. I sent Tao an email and he immediately replied. I had placed the fuse power wire into the wrong spot. Once I moved the position of the fuse, things worked perfectly.
    4) I initially couldn’t open the liftgate with the key fob. However, I just need to press the unlock button 5 times instead of 3.
    5) Next: I’m planning on installing the foot sensor.

    Final thoughts: I’d definitely recommend the product and Autoease. If you’re fairly handy or willing to struggle and learn, you’ll be able to install the liftgate opener with the help of Tao, youtube and the instruction manual.

  26. Tom Dale

    I bought one of these to fit to my Audi Q3. I had difficulty finding an auto electrician to fit it for me because either they had not done one before, or they had heard that they did not work correctly in the car because they were an aftermarket kit. Well I found a guy who wanted to fit it for me. The kit is very good quality, the control unit is clever and the whole system works brilliantly and at more than half the cost. Everytime I have contacted the support team with any queries they have been always quick to reply and were very helpful. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone.

  27. Amir Avidan

    Very pleased with our purchase. Everything works wonderfully.

    Arrived quickly considering it was an international shipment to Canada.

    Customer service was excellent with any and every question we had.

    Highly recommend the product and this company to anyone and everyone

  28. Ulises Valero

    In the times that we live, you do not see such a professional person who is willing to help the client by bothering even in non-working hours and still willing to serve. I live in the United States and the owner of this company is a true professional. From China a shipment in just a few days and by WhatsApp indicated everything they had to do to install the liftgate. I recommend 100% the products as well as the worker behind this business. Excellent efficiency and quality. 100% Guarantee .AAA +++

    • Autoease Technology

      Thank you Ulises for the kind comment. We’re not sure if we deserve such a compliment but it does inspire us to do a better job.

  29. Sean Donovan

    I wanted to send you a note to tell you how pleased I am with this product. I had it professionally installed, glad I did, and it works perfectly. The mechanic was impressed by the quality of the components-he felt they were excellent-and he was also impressed by how well it works. You could easily mistake this for a factory option, it’s that good.

    I feel that this was well worth the money especially after seeing how this has worked for the last couple of months. It is on my wife’s car and she loves it, in fact more than her last car because this one has the boot sensor to open with your foot.

    Again,fabulous product, I would not hesitate to recommend. Only downside for me were the install costs, this was not something I wanted to do, but if you have the time it is a DIY job.

  30. Matt Harper

    I’ve made the adjustments to the door opening height and closing speed, much better thanks for that. I just want to let you know what a wonderful experience it has been working with you. I’m so impressed at your timely responses with the emails and your attention to detail. Your product is very well made and most of all, it works great. Thank you very much for the kit and I hope the information I’ve sent you is what you needed. Again, words can’t describe how happy I am that you sent me the kit. I had looked for a long time and had almost given up on finding a power liftgate for Honda Pilot. I’m so pleased I was able to find your company and even more pleased at your professionalism and knowledge of your product. If in the future you need anything from me please don’t hesitate to let me know. I would be more than happy to help out in any way I can. I’ll definitely pass along the name of your company to everyone I know. Thanks Tao and have a blessed day.

  31. Daniel Beecher

    Great product, got it for my 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback EX, works fantastic. A little tricky to install but I have no experience in cars and was able to get it installed my self in about 5 hours. Couldn’t figure out how to get the light on the button to work but it fictions great and I love it. My sister loves it to and she is now hoping to get it for her Civic as well. And having the support over Whatsapp is amazing!!

  32. andrea borin

    Five stars im very happy
    I installed the last upgrade 7th may 2020 automatic liftgate for my Range Rover Evoque 2015.
    My kit was purchased in 2018, I replaced with a new one for free under three years warrenty.
    Mr Tao is very helpful with all questions. The whole installation took me less than 5 hours. The most difficult was the passage of the cables in the corrugated tube from the roof to rear door, because the corrugated is very tight, the rest is very very easy.
    I’d definitely recommend Autoease, for the product and service behind.

  33. Jeff Wield

    My dream would be that every online store has as great of post-sales support as Autoease. It’s like asking a neighbor for help except that neighbor is in another time zone. Replies to my emails are prompt and helpful. I got the door out of sync somehow through no fault of the hardware. They asked for some pictures and a video clip and got it quickly resolved. Great people to work with. I’ve purchased another lift kit for my other car. I know when I install it, they’ll be right there with me to help if needed.

  34. Douglas J Nielsen

    I would echo what has been stated above. The directions are a little “vague” or something is lost in translation. However this is all made up for by the best post sale customer service I’ve ever experienced. Installation took more like 6 hours for an in experienced guy like me. Most of the extra time is just running the wires from the front to the back of the car. I’m a little anal about this kind of thing and wanted them ran right next to the wiring harness. My problem started when it wouldn’t work after I’d installed it. MY FAULT. One of the connectors was not fully seated and gave a bad connection. In defense, the connector was kind of hidden behind a piece of sheet metal and hard to get at. I contacted Tao in customer service. He walked me through a diagnosis quite quickly that included measuring the voltage at that connector. When I pressed the voltmeter probes to it, I heard it click into place. After that the system worked perfectly.
    initial quality of parts, 5 stars.
    Customer service, not able to rate it on a 5 star system. Best customer service i’ve ever experienced.

      Thanks Doug for such kind comment, wish you having a very plansant experience in using our kit 🙂

  35. Gianpaolo C

    We installed the tailgate kit in a BMW X3 F25 2015. It wasn’t easy! Especially trying the to fit the cables in existing places. There was almost no room for the extra cables and the length of the cables wasn’t optimal for placing the control box where we wanted. We had to install it on the right side a little high. But we could hide it. Connecting the cables was easy! But if you want to install the foot sensor, the green cable goes into the handle switch and the red cable is not used! The knob to open the tailgate left of the steering wheel (Left side drive) is not original BMW! That is a shame, because that’s the only piece of hardware that indicates that it is a aftermarket feature! Also the placement of the 12v in the fuse box is not clear. Where to put it. We had to find a free fuse. But we did it and it took us 7 hours. It works fine but the standard close speed is too slow, so we adjusted it to level 6. The support is excellent, we got fast response to our questions. A lot of our questions where not in the manual but should be in there..

    Installed their product on our 2018 Prius Prime. Was definitely work running all the wire but the end result was well worth it! The installation manual can use some work but their customer service was FANTASTIC! They replied immediately to all my emails when I ran into a problem. Great product and great service!
