Isn't the trunk supposed to open when you press the trunk release button?

06 has rattling top issues - pretty sure I read a campaign on it.
Not sure what was done to correct it.

If it opens every time with the remote, it's the door button switch or connector or associated wiring. Fix it ASAP, the vert doesn't have a key latch to get into the trunk manually.

Not the Hamptons (I wish) but Hampton Beach, NH .. but since moved to Missouri

Old button may have crap in it. A replacement is probably inexpensive, but my wife has a Hyundai with the same problem, I soaked it in a glass with detergent, dried it out well and it works like new.
I get a weekly digest of random posts via email. That's the only reason I read here anymore as I sold my G6 last summer.

Regarding your top noise. I may be due to worn out parts, but here is the TSB and repair procedure
