    Anyone having difficulty closing their Micra hatch?....

    I seem to have this niggling problem.......Im very pleased with my Micra overall, but this does cause a bit of frustration from time to time....Ive had Honda Civics, and Honda Elements that had hatches, and you could fill the cargo space to the gunnels, close the hatch and it would close properly, even if stuff was pressing against the windows.....not so it seems with my Micra......it seems if anything is touching the hatch door, the hatch fails to lock properly.....Im more careful about it now, and am careful to keep things away from the hatch door.....but I guess it wasnt designed to handle being "stuffed to the gunnels".....Anyone else experienced a finicky hatch?....I should mention I drive a 2019 Micra SV....

    I also have a 2019 SV and used it to move my stuff to a new place, my back was stuffed to the gunnel and the hatch closed properly everytime I closed it even with bag of clothes press against the hatch, get that checked at the dealer or mechanic you might have a faulty hatch.

    I have to slam my rear hatch pretty hard even when empty unless I leave a door or window open to release the air pressure.
    Why not give that a try.

    Ahhhh....makes tons of sense.......It hasnt been doing it lately, because Ive been leaving the rear windows down a crack to allow heat to vent when the car is sitting......and yes, it seemed to do it only when all the windows were rolled up completely....mystery solved!....thank you!.....

    Glad I could help, I always say try the simple stuff first.
    If you’ve ever sat in your Micra when someone else closes the hatch you’ll probably think what the hell, take it easy ( at least I do) Such a small car with well sealed doors & windows it happens.
