There seems to be a problem with being able to open my trunk door. A while ago, something like August 2014, I went to open the trunk to put groceries in and it wouldn't open. Tried locking and unlocking again. Nothing worked. So I went a few week without being able to open the trunk. One day I decided to try it again and it worked. But now, January 2015, I tried opening my trunk the other day to take the groceries out of there and it wouldn't open again. I still cant open it so I think im gonna have to take it to a mechanic. Also the handle on the rear right door seems to be loose.
