|raballer||Anyone here know if theres a way to disable the manual trunk release? The way it's currently set up, if someone breaks in to the passenger compartment, they can press the button and open the trunk. Is there any way to disable this?|

Decontenting. Gotta love it. NOT!!!
I'm so old that I remember when every door, as well as the trunk lid, was equipped with a lock cylinder, and every car, other than the cheapest econoboxes, had lights in its glove compartment and console. Oh, and every vehicle had a cigar lighter and ashtray as standard equipment too.
I could go on, but what's the point? It is what it is. The bean-counters rule in every automaker's ivory tower, and the shareholders are loving it. Of course, they're not driving the same cars we are.

|hazelkitten||Sure, they may have implemented ways to keep your battery from being drained so you don't wake up to a car that won't start but it still happens and however infrequently it may do so now it is still a gigantic pain when it does happen and then you have this problem on top of itâ€¦and sure you could keep your cables in the front of the car and solve thatâ€¦but my main issue with it and the concern I have is what if you get locked in your trunk, in that situation this mechanism is implemented as a safety feature, so that there is an escape routeâ€¦in fact I think it's now even required in all newly manufactured cars for that reason. The company's selfish attempt to save a buck is why this thoughtlessly asinine design utterly failed in incorporating this safety mechanism- such a simple standard feature that at the very least could save someone a lot of hassle and at the most, in a worst-case scenario, could possibly save their life.|

|702•LTZ||Personally, I'm with chevy on the keyless trunk. Theres so much crap on these cars to prevent you from killing your battery, I think another option would have been a good idea..but I feel it works. What you could do is install a holder for cables behind rear bumper..no need for power to get cables out, of coarse you'd have to get on the ground..|

Yeah, it really is a poor design - both the trunk opening and the "can't remove key from ignition" issue when the battery is dead (don't understand that one at all). They could have had a manual trunk release just like they do for the hood... But, like I said, your battery shouldn't die very often, so it's not typically a big deal (until it happens!).

Good point haha.
You could keep the two specific tools required for that in the glove box.
(Or just keep cables in the cabin in the first place )
