    Ok I took the car back to the dealer and they said that they could not duplicate the problem.....

    So when I walk up to the drivers door and put my fingers behind the handle to pull I hear the car unlock, BUT when I pull the handle the door does not open. after pulling 3 or 4 times it now will open (only heard the unlock once). I read the manual again and it states to make sure you are not touching the outside where the lock sensor is because it will not work. so I have been very conscious of this and still it often will not open. My Dad drove the car on a trip this last week and also experienced the same thing. My wife also has had this occur on her. Only seams to happen on the drivers door.

    So are we doing something to cause this? Are others having this happen to them?

    I have had this happen several times as well...seems to occur when the car has been left out in the sun on a hot day. First time I had to open from the back door, then learned if I try several times it will eventually work. Probably just an alignment problem...going to have the dealer look at it tomorrow.

    Dealer said they have heard of this problem and ordered a new door latch.
