The trunk locks on these cars can sometimes act like they have a mind of their own and lock you out at very inconvenient times. Its best to unlock the trunk by unlocking the doors. Avoid opening the trunk with the key and you'll have less problems, at least I haven't got locked out "since" doing it that way.
Nice car, happy motoring

Oh, and be sure to check the tranny fluid, sometimes folks put 90 wt gear oil in there, probably not the case with yours but you want too be sure theres ATF (or "ATF" type) in there.
