I thought this was just me. One day I notice a whole sht load of scratches, I thought i was seeing things. Don't know what I'm going to do. I will definatley let the service dept know when I bring it in for service. :mad:

this has been brought up here many times before. a lot of people have went in to get it fixed. but some have said they saw it come right back. thats what i am afraid of.

its a bulletin. They will install some bumpers to make sure the trunk does not contact the bumper anymore. This seems to be with a spoiler. Since I got mine swaped out for a blank trunk it doesnt even get close.

they have to drill into the rear trunk lid. I work at saturn and I orderd some for my RL. there tiny rubber bumpers that go into it so they hit the bumper instead of the metal on the trunklid they stick clear round stickes where they go so it does not ruin th bumper. ill take pics when I get it done.

Just an FYI, this is happening on my car (I think I've closed the trunk 3 times since I got it) and my fathers which is a '04 4-door Sedan. There are lots of scratches from my brothers hockey bag but their are scrathes in the same spot and look the same as mine. From what me and him can conclude, it is the same problem.

If any of you notice with the big aero wing driving at highway speeds, the wing vibrates quite a bit. I am sure that this causes the trunk to constantly rub with the bumper and is probably more so of an issue than closing the trunk lid itself. Even the smaller decklid wings will vibrate and cause the same problem.
