Your car is equipped with an important safety feature to prevent the possibility of someone being trapped in the trunk. The interior luggage compartment/emergency trunk release can be pulled at any time to open the trunk. Here’s what you need to know:

  • The interior luggage compartment/emergency trunk release is shaped like a T, and made of a material that glows in the dark.

  • The release can be found either on the underside of the trunk lid, or near the taillights on the back wall of the trunk.

  • Pulling the release opens the trunk.

  • Push up on the trunk lid to open it completely.

Tips

  • Always be familiar with where the emergency trunk release is located.

  • Be alert when children are playing near the car. Use your best judgment about informing your children about the emergency release.
