I find it annoying that there is not a handle inside the trunk to use for closing the trunk lid. My Prius had that and it was a very useful feature. When my car is dirty, I hate the fingerprints, even worse possible scratches from rings and fingernails.

Has anyone found a way to install a handle or strap inside the trunk? Any ideas?

Ugh, I also find this so annoying... especially after switching between my older Honda (where openings are present on inside trunk surface) and the Insight.

The Gen3 Insight and GenX Civic are the same size/platform, and I came across this suggestion for "DIY Trunk Closing Handle" on the CivicX site - DIY: Trunk Closer Handle

The suggestions include reapplying a handle from the Accord (Part # 84635-SEA-003ZF), or attaching cargo strap to similar location. Others comments in the thread suggest using the existing lock mechanism or rubber stops to close the trunk (though this could cause other unintended issues longer term).
