Trunk latch issues

So, I have a random problem that is a little unnerving. Last week I went down to Georgia, and about halfway down my trunk decided to open while I was doing 75 down the interstate. I figured it was something in the trunk that grabbed the stupid emergency handle, so I moved stuff around. After that it happened 3 more times on the way there and 4 more on the way home. It was fine running around the town we were in. Now that I'm back home, it happens on the freeway at least twice to and from school. Any ideas? I plan on taking it to Ford ASAP.

stop putting people in your trunk. :)

it might just be a jam on the latch hook. take it in, it shouldn't be too hard for them to diagnose and fix it. alternately, you could take a look and try to see if the hook closes properly.
