Yes. Same thing. Hit the release and it'll pop but not release for 30 seconds or so.
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.
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.
I have trouble closing mine, have to slam it down.
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.
