Trunk pops open.

So im driving today and there was a bump in the road ahead so I slowed down and as i made my way over the bump i hear a "click" sound and then beeping inside the cabin, I look at the display and it was showing that my trunk had opened! I pulled to the side and to my surprise the trunk had actually opened. This was bizarre because I was driving around all day, never opened the trunk and I was driving for atleast 20 mins without stopping when my trunk suddenly opened up. I didn't touch the trunk release nor did I touch the trunk release on the key. I'm still trying to figure out why the trunk just popped open but I will bring it up with my dealer when I do go in for a oil change later this week.
I've had my 300c a little over a year and about once every 2 or 3 months the trunk opens itself while the car is moving. Different speeds, warm or cold, wet or dry, smooth or bumpy, doesn't matter. It's not a huge issue as long as you don't slam on the brakes and break off the hinges, but it's awfully annoying, and an issue that Chyrsler seems clueless about.
