It is actually there to equalise cabin pressure. Otherwise everytime you slammed a door, or rolled up a window, your ears would pop. It vents inside air to outside, but only when inside pressure exceeds outside pressure.

They can and do go bad. My dad's died on his 1997. He never knew. Then one day, after driving down a gravel road, he opened the hatch and found his entire trunk COVERED in gravel dust! *LAUGH*. He spent 2 hours vaccuming his trunk area out!

If you start to notice excess dust in your trunk...you might want to give that vent a look.
