    Hi everyone,

    I'm a long time lurker and first time poster on CivicX.com! You guys helped guide me toward a 2016 Touring model, and what a great car it has been! The only two issues I've had with the car are:

    1) The subwoofer rattling on medium volumes (advice?), and

    2) My "trunk open" alarm triggers whenever the car is slightly agitated. I've created a video as proof:


    I verified after making the video that the trunk was indeed shut. The alarm triggers over some bumps in the road, and almost always when driving over highway lane-markers. The car's sensitivity to shock seems to increase with time, as I might hear is 40 or 50 times in a half-hour drive now. I haven't come across this issue elsewhere on the forums, however I hope this video serves as evidence to anyone having a hard time gathering enough to prove their case for Honda.
