problem #1

On several occassions, after driving the vehicle to the destination, and after pressing the unlock button on the central console, you could audibly hear the locks "unlock", visibly see the buttons on the door pop up, however, the driver's side door would not release. I would be stuck inside the vehicle. This problem always seemed to follow washing the vehicle. It was determined that the latch and cable assembly failed and required to be replaced.
