Jetta trunk unable to close, and other problems

The VW Jetta is year 2000 and recently I havn't been able to close its trunk.

There is also this other problem that the whole car pulls backward whenever I accelerate on a green light. I did take it to a shop and they said that problem was fixed. I thought it did but after a while it started again. anyone know a good mechanic for Jettas?

Also,if I wanted to get another pair of car keys, would VW dealers have them for sell?

I like the car but recently I feel like switching to a newer one or get a C230 from a coworker. Hope the problems can be fixed without much trouble.

Appreciate any help

for the trunk check the latch it might of moved down from being abused (slamming trunks) i had the same promblem on my car i moved it back up it was just hitting my weather seal and bouncing back up
latches could be adjusted
make the trunk sit flush to quarter panels and do a water leak test after

Take it to IB motors at the bottom of Oak Street and speak with Ingo.
