Civic 4-cyl

  • 90,000 miles
I have a 2006 Honda Civic si. The trunk does not have a key entry to it and the wireless entry system was not working to open the trunk. Additionally, I was able to gain access to the trunk by removing the backseat and attempted to pull the emergency trunk release and the trunk will still not open. There has not been an accident nor any event which would have cause the trunk to not open. I went to a Honda dealer and they said that the latch was broken and that it would cost a total of $400 to fix. My concern is that if a child or someone accidentally gets locked in the trunk, there is no way that they would be able to get out unless the trunk is cut into. This defect seems like a safety issue and from reading online, it appears that this has happened to multiple Honda Civic si's. the other difference with this model is that the Civic si does not have a key entry to the trunk so there is no manual override (minus the emergency manual override which does not work).
