I now find it extremely difficult to keep my trunk door
open without having to hold it constantly. This never happened before, but it has noticeably been degrading over the weeks, until this point where it just doesn't stick.

Nope, you need to take it to the dealer and have them replace the "hold-it-openers". These are the things that look like shock absorbers attached at the sides of the trunk lid. It should definitely be a warranty item.

Only "fix" that doesnt require going to the dealer is to make yourself a nice broomstick of the right length and prop it open. Snap-on makes a adjustable-length one that costs $50 or so. But why not just let the dealer fix it for free?
