takes 2 or 3 tries

For me it seems that if I don't slam it down at the right spot it won't close. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 tries to get it closed. It doesn't really bother me cause this car too fun to drive.

Ithink the car is sealed a little to tight(air pressure problem). My doors do the same. Try closing your trunk with a window or door open, that works for me.

I do the same, I grab the gap on the inside of the trunk hood and then thrust it down. That way I don't have to hold the wing or touch or break the wing.


I have a bad history of breaking things

When I bought mine, I tried to close it somewhat softly and it wouldn't close. I had to get the salesman and tell him my trunk wouldn't close. Then he comes and slams it REALLY HARD and says there you go. I thought the spoiler was going to come off. What a dick head. Yes, I have to slam mine to get it shut. Same with the doors.

Hey dR, use some locktite (I'm drawing a blank on what it's called, but I think that's right) to keep them from working loose. I think it's the blue that won't permantly seize them.

I've found that it's not so much how hard I close my trunk as where I push down on it. If my greasy paw is directly over the latch, it usually closes pretty well. Otherwise, it pops back up. Speaking of greasy paws, thanks for the new handle idea. I hate those fingerprints!

p.s. Ok, so who here is aroused by my avatar? ;)
