Dodge Neon Problem
Average Mileage: 154,949 mi (150,098 mi - 159,800 mi)
When the trunk lid weatherstrip (seal) is worn, the lid may rattle, water may leak into the trunk, or dust may get into the trunk. After installing a new trunk lid (deck lid) weatherstrip, be sure to adjust the trunk slam bumpers so the power trunk latch opens the trunk on the first attempt.

The weather strip ripped and was real worn. it was leaking water, dust and pretty much everything. I had to buy a new weatherstrip that wasn't cheap.
