My mom bought a 2014 Nissan Versa SV about six weeks ago. She says that about two weeks or so after she bought it, her co-worker came into the office and noticed her trunk was open. My mom said it was shut when she went to work and it's only a 3-5 min. drive. Today, she was going to go shopping, but noticed her trunk was open again, so she decided not to go anywhere. She's very disturbed by this.
The trunk was definitely shut when my mom came home yesterday, I saw it was shut. She couldn't have possibly opened it from accidentally hitting the button on the remote. It's nearly impossible. We tested out the key and you do have to be standing fairly close to the car. There are only two keys to the car. My mom has one key and I have the other.
How and why would the trunk open all by itself? And when I say open, I mean that the trunk lid was open several inches like when you push the button on the key remote and it pops open. It's a bit disturbing, someone could steal groceries out of it if it spontaneously opened while at a store. Or what if it opened while driving? Has anyone else had this happen? Should my mom call the dealer to notify them?
Advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
i would seriously consider telling your mom to try taking the keys out of her pocket or wherever they might have a chance to have the trunk release button pressed, while it may seem like the keys need to be close to the car in order for them to work that is not always the case as i have noticed depending on what angle im aiming my keys at my car they either will or will not lock/unlock my car from a far distance. not saying that she is accidentally pressing them, but just trying to get you on a process of elumination to see whats causing it as this is the first i've heard of the trunk opening by itself on a versa.
