We have ordered the power tailgate for ours. I could live with it either way - doesn't particularly worry me seeing as my car is also a wagon (Forester). As wokwn said, if your budget is not limited go for it. I have used it on an Accord Euro wagon in Europe, and on a Lexus and its not a bad idea though it can be a bit slow to open and close.
Edit: I don't know the cost of the option, so I would be interested to see what the RRP is.
