    Having trunk latch issues.

    Anyone else having problems with the trunk latch being activated but not unlatching. It does unlatch but I have to push down on the hatch first to make it release sometimes. Also it will sound like it closes but doesn't latch right and you can't lock the car until you open it back up and slam it down harder.

    Yes. Same thing. Hit the release and it'll pop but not release for 30 seconds or so.

    I believe there are adjustable stops back there; they may be out of adjustment. sounds like they are too far out and need some inward adjustment.

    No problems opening, but i have the not closing issue. On mine when it doesn't close the the right hand side of the hatch seems raised relative to the left.

    No closing issues here, but sometimes when I hit the trunk release button the hatch won't unlatch and I'll have to hit the release button on the hatch to get it to open. Not a big deal, though, as at least the lights come on when I hit the trunk release button on the dash.

    Check the adjustable stops...others have had the uneven hatch and have easily adjusted it to sit flush...probably why it is not closing properly too.

    How to they adjust? I checked tonight before heading home from work and the LHS was extended while the RHS was fully retracted, so it looks as if some pre-delivery adjustment was performed, assuming i'm looking at the correct shims.
