BTW the sedan trunk is spring loaded so it pops open (pretty damn quickly might I add)

I'd like to have it, but it's not high on my list of pet peeves. Here's the picture.

2013 SE's have the trunk release but do not get fogs (unless you get the $2500-ish SE Appearance Package).

I'd prefer having a genuine mechanical method of opening it up.
But I'm very old school like that

|scottjl||semi-useful in the Ti and I wouldn't mind if I did have it but I don't exactly miss it that I don't. I can either hit the button on the fob, or more easily, just grab and open the hatch anyway, since the Ti senses the fob nearby and unlocks the hatch when you pull it. never been an issue for me. I would think the S and SE owners would want this more than the Ti owners.|

|1slofofo||I have experimented and I couldn't open the trunk while the car is moving, it has to be stopped, you can be in drive but have to be stopped for it to open|

For the sedan the trunk pops ALL THE WAY OPEN. On mine anyway. I have had to actually warn people standing next to my trunk waiting for me to open it to STAND BACK or else they could get smacked with it.
Even when opening the trunk by the button in the handle, if you are not HOLDING the handle tight and press the button, the trunk FLIES ALL THE WAY OPEN.

I think the sedans do pop the trunk halfway or so.
The fog like "comparison" was just to say that I don't think it's easy to accidentally press that new trunk button. I honestly don't know if I've ever used my fog lights in the past year, so I'm not used to using the button, but I don't think it would be hard to press the right one. The dash light brightness buttons work the same way, haven't gotten those mixed yet ;) still, I see no need for a button inside. The Cruze is the same way, with that ever so handy button right at the trunk. Makes the other way of having a button inside the car seem to dated and unnecessary, IMHO.
A snack for some thought... I think the trunk release (pop) on the key fob still works when the car is running, so long as it's in park (or parking brake is on if it's a MT).
