Trax tailgate sealant

Asked by Ken Parnaby

I had a small mishap with my 2015 Holden Trax and damaged the tailgate. When I went to repair it I discovered that the "fold-over" is not metal but a form of white filler, which is soft if you dig into it with a fingernail. I bought this car new. It would seem to be a fruitless exercise for a maker to lay on a non-supportive bit of gunk like that. Is this normal in the manufacture of this car, or have I been bunged a rebuild of some kind?

There are a lot of sealers and glues used in today's cars, so what you've got is common. You haven't been sold a bodged-up car.
