It appears that the latest update changed how our trunk works (2017 S). Now, if either front door is open (didn't test the back doors), the trunk will not close when we press the auto close button in the trunk. When both doors are closed, the trunk closes like it always has in the past. Just thought I would pass that along in case others think they are having a problem with their trunk closing.
Full disclosure. The car had the rear bumper painted by a top notch local body shop, and when I opened the trunk for the 1st time since getting it back we noticed the problem closing the trunk. I went back to the body shop today, and they noted they never had to touch the trunk mechanism at all. And, damn, every time they tried to close the trunk, it closed. They told me to bring it back if it happened again. I said OK and started to get in the car, then I stopped and said I will just try it one more time. Sure enough, it wouldn't close (I had the front door open). Three of us tested it about a dozen more times with the doors open and then closed, and we came to the conclusion mentioned above.
