Does the tailgate automatically open when you approach the rear?
If equipped, yes. It's not a standard feature, except on the limited. But you can get it via options packages on other trim levels.

It waits 3 or 4 seconds before opening, to avoid opening it when you just happen to be walking behind the car and don't actually want it to open.

Thanks, I have the Limited. (My Santa Fe beeps when I stand behind the vehicle then opens automatically after a few seconds, but my Palisade does not beep and so far the tailgate does not open automatically

You have to turn the feature on in the settings. Explore your settings menu and read the manuals.

Hi Debbie, my Limited beeps 3 times when I approach the vehicle and stand behind it. You might have adjust the user settings. Also your doors need to be locked.
