The latches in these cars are very problematic . If you close the hatch and the latch does not catch and close the tailgate then the latch needs to be replaced. The job is very easy and the part is inexpensive. The rear door panel will need to come off to replace the latch. Not sure if aftermarket sells this part. Hope this information helps if you need anything else please let me know . Please take a second and click the stars at the top of the screen to rate my service so I may receive my credit for helping, 5 STARS is ideal. Please request me in the future! Keep in mind that when you rate it does NOT end our conversation, you can still return here to me for follow up information if needed just simply reply back, THANKS!
