I test drove an R170 last night that I might buy but it had a problem with the trunk/top. I know that's a common problem area on these cars but I didn't find this particular version of it in the search.

Before there was a problem... I opened the trunk just to have a look, see things are in check, spare tire, water, etc, and closed the trunk.
Then I went for a drive drive and tried to bring the top down but the light blinked instead. So I stopped the car, put in neutral, applied the parking brake and still wouldn't convert. Then I remembered the divider to limit the storage area, and opened the trunk and pulled it out. Then the trunk wouldn't latch closed. I tried harder, then slammed it and it seemed like it wasn't even close to latching. Ideas?

I'm not so sure about that... it seems the trunk should still close. The top never moved from the up position.
