It should latch properly- be very careful to be sure of that no matter what you do. A partially open rear hatch will allow CO and CO2 into the cabin, and that will cause you to get sleepy on long trips. A long time ago that happened to my sister. I had called her to say hello, and she complained about getting very sleepy on her 30 min trips home from work. As soon as she got home, she was wide awake, she said- weird, huh? Knowing that the hatch had been replaced recently due to a minor accident, I asked her to do an experiment for me- crack both windows on her side when driving home. Of course, she didn't feel sleepy any more, and we had the hatch fixed.
