2007 Hyundai Azera: Hyundai's Response to Why the Lid Doesn't Pop
September 13, 2007
So remember that post I did complaining about our 2007 Hyundai Azera's non-popping trunk lid? Well, Hyundai PR called me up to explain that the key fob's button is designed to do just that: unlock and release the trunk lid. He said that the lid doesn't "fling open" because that's how it is in "refined cars." "Well, I'm not expecting it to fling open...nowadays cars can pop the lid even a little bit," I responded. But he reiterated how since it's a "refined" car it's not going to "fling" the lid open and hit you in the chin, like car trunk lids used to do in the old days.
Also, he said it's a safety issue, as Jaymagic had mention in the comments of the other post, if you do hit the button accidently, the lid won't fling open leaving all your cargo exposed to the world. So there you have it.
