2008 Pontiac G8 GT: Secret Trunk Release Button

October 19, 2009

It was nice having the 2008 Pontiac G8 GT as my weekend ride. I could comfortably transport my friends to bbq parties, safely stow away beer in the trunk thanks to the cargo net, so very easily pass slo-mo drivers on the freeway and handle my favorite 30-mph on-ramp at fun speeds.

The only thing I wasn't too crazy about -- and it's not a big deal by any means since I'm sure owners of this car will adapt accordingly -- was that there isn't an exterior trunk release button. There's the remote trunk release on the key and a button in the car, but if someone is helping you load your luggage, they'll have to wait for you to open the trunk for them.

And did I mention that the trunk release button in the car is not located on the driver side, but rather within the confines of the glovebox? H'yeah, a little inconvenient. I assume this has something to do with valet and securing your valuables in the trunk when they take it away.
