Could anyone please tell me if they notice a difference in the "sound" that the lock makes on the trunk door? Today was the first time that I've used the lock/unlock button on that door and I was surprised at the difference in the sound. Instead of the "click" the other four doors make, it's considerably louder and.....well different. Kinda hard to explain. Nissan said to bring it in, but I spoke to my salesman first and he actually went out to try another cube for me. He was surprised to see that there was a difference in that one too, but I'm hoping it's normal. Would someone please check their's for me and give me their opinion?

Thanks,

Michelle

I will have to pay closer attention to it next time I use it... I wouldn't be surprised if it is normal to be a little louder because the rear door is bigger than the other 4 so it has a larger "box" for the sound to resonate in.

That makes sense to me, KandA. My husband also mentioned that it's likely to have less insulation than the other four doors....but he'll have a listen when he gets home. Keep me posted on yours, please!

Yep. It's louder. Noticeably so. Not tons, but there's a definite difference... so I do believe you're fine.

Got Cube?

You have to remember too, the entire lock/latch mechanism in the rear door is completely different and heavier duty than the locks in the doors. And if you listen closely, there's a slight electric motor type hum that lasts a split second after the initial "click". I never thought anything of it honestly.

You're right. And it is something I considered, but knowing that others sound the same still makes me feel better.

Mine doesn't like me, either!


Again, I really appreciate this feedback everyone. Nice to know that there's somewhere we can go and ask things like this.

Odd... I don't have that problem. The door has two opening positions and it holds strong at both those positions for me.
