Small trunk lid

Am I missing something, is there anyway to automatically close the small trunk lid? It'svery awkward to close it by hand.

I've honestly never used it and hard pressed to see the value

But no, it's a manual trunk lid that you push shut.

It does have the soft-close feature, though...you don't have to slam it shut, it should (at least on mine), close itself that last little bit. There are some handholds on the inner panel that should be enough to get it closed without getting dirty on the outside.

The hand holds do not work as closers unless you slam it and get your hands out in time. Rather they move the lid down far enough so that you then push on the outside to complete the closing.
Kind of shabby.
