How do I use the emergency trunk release?

The emergency trunk release is a system that allows a person to escape from the vehicle if they are trapped in the trunk. The trunk release is a plastic handle that hangs down from the inside of the trunk. To use the emergency trunk release, pull on this handle and push the trunk open.

Tip

The emergency trunk release can also be used if you are trapped in the vehicle cabin and the doors are not opening. Access the trunk by folding down the rear seats, and exit the vehicle through the trunk.
