    I've had my trunk automatically open four times in the 1-year that I've owned my 2017 CX-5. Luckily It's always happened at home, while my car was in the garage.

    I always put my keys on the kitchen counter when I get home, there is no chance that I'm accidentally pressing a button.
    If it is the key-fob button being pressed, as people are suggesting, then you would think that it would be equally as likely that the panic button is accidentally pressed as well, but that's never happened to me, nor am I seeing anyone reporting that as in issue.

    Could it be possible of cross interference with another radio device...possible even another Mazda?

    It takes a very deliberate LONG push on the fob button to make the hatch open, so the accidental activation theory is pretty weak.

    Stop blaming the victims!

    It's never happened to me but I doubt it's someone else's remote causing it.

    This reminds me of a car review I read back in the early 90s. It was for a Cadillac, I think. Anyway, the reviewers came to a restaurant or something and there was another car exactly like the one they were reviewing, sitting in the parking lot. If I remember correctly it was even the same color. They could unlock this other car with their remote! I'm sure a lot had changed in close to 30 years. Especially considering virtually every car today has a remote.

    No such issue has been reported on the several European forums neither.

    Slightly off topic, but I remember in the early 1980's (remember this is the UK and remote control door locks were science fiction) my friends had a Ford Granada (1978), Ford Escort (1974) and a Ford Cortina (1977) and the key from the Cortina could also unlock the Escort and Granada. Crazy.

    Any kiddos present for those finding the trunk open at home?

    My Odyssey started intermittently relocking itself when hitting 10 mph about a week ago. Yesterday I figured out it was my 5 year old screwing with her sliding door lock lol! Shared at Odyclub for laughs, and ended up getting a reply that she should “get a stern talking to” and be forced to “sit in middle the back row” as safety is no joke. Thanks killjoy, she’s 5 and I’ve got the child locks on. I asked her if she wanted to fly out of a moving van on the highway like any parent would do and that about did it (eyeroll). I digress...

    All I could see is that may have picked up your pop in the same hand as the keys? I've done this a number of times. Usually with the key in my pocket. I really wish there was a solution for it - the button is way too sensitive. I agree with previous posts that it could be a double button option or something like that. I'm thinking I'll get a key fob case - hopefully that helps. Last point though - mine doesn't do any audible noise for the tailgate opening. Is that unusual? It's a '17 GT. It's also nowhere near 2 seconds of holding to get the tailgate to open. Closer to .5 seconds.

    The buttons on my remote are not sensitive at all, especially the one for the tailgate. Requires a decent sustained press for it to work.
