helloCustomer there is a torsion bar or spring bar located at the rear or the trunk door, it is mounted between the body and the trunk, please inspect this bar for proper alingment or perhaps the bar is broken, also check the point where the bar is mounted to and hinge point for possible damage, did this happen when you had a trunk full of items that may have dislodged the bar, I have the same vehicle, and that is what i had found with mine, i hope this helps, thx Dano
