Trunk?

I was showing my friend my "switchblade" key and he asked how that works if I need it to open my trunk, if my FOB won't open it.

Good question, as I don't see any "key hole" in the back to open the trunk.

I suppose you would have to crawl through the open access when you fold the rear seat down.

There must be a manual release for the trunk once you get back in there.

Then I thought, if you can't open the trunk, you probably won't be able to open the doors. Upon checking my doors, I don't have a key hole for that either if the FOB fails.

What say you???

Read the owners manual.
Usually the salesperson shows you how to remove the cap on the door to access the keyhole. This is in case your battery is dead, fob or car.

WOW!!!!

Why didn't I think of reading the manual??? Yep, explains the way to get into the vehicle through the door. Then when unlocked you can open the trunk with the "pad" under the "Impala" sign.

However, if somehow your car battery dies and you need to get into your trunk, then it's crawl through the back seat, because no electric power, no nothing.

Love this new technology BS.

Instead of carrying an umbrella in the door slots, think I will carry a "crow bar". Probably have more use for that.

I'm sure this was tongue in cheek because in my 47 years of legal driving...that situation has never happened to me...but I suppose it could

Right On Guys!!!

Good conversation and advise. When you get old like me you sit with your buddies at coffee and think about stuff like this.

See what you young guys got to look forward to.

Like I have said in earlier posts, I do like all the gadgets, just don't understand some of it.

I have 2100 miles on my 2015 2LT and like it more and more as I drive it.
