Q: Trunk won't close

asked by on

My trunk won't close Need to know what to do to fix it.

My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. Usually when a trunk won’t close, it’s due to the trunk lock latch being damaged. This is something that can be replaced by a professional mechanic. However, before you decide to replace the trunk latch, you might want to have a mechanic complete a truck does not lock or close inspection first.
