On my Rio5 LX,
I when to open the back hatch and was surprised when I squeezed the handle.
The black latch would not spring back into its normal location. :eek:

The piece does not appear to be broken, just "off the track" or out of place with something. The only way to get the black latch back to normal is to open the access panel on the back door itself and jiggle the silver bar until the black latch released.

I have a deal appointment soon to check it out.

Anybody else have this happen to them ?

the dealer had to order the whole handle-piece.
The black handle that you squeeze to open the rear hatch was broken.

Oh well - it is fixed now...

Thanks for sharing. At least we can now look out for the same issue... hopefully it's not common.
