Mine as well, reported it to the dealer, they said they adjusted it, sounds the same.

Ack -- I like having the option of the motorized liftgate, but wish it were easier to just open it. It's slow - wish the motor would relinquish control when you pull it open.

Sometimes I wish I didn't have the power lift gate for the same reason.

Drives you nuts when you just closed it and have an oops forgot something moment and up goes the drawbridge again

I miss my 2002 GC pop up window too.

If it's just a little thing you forgot, just use the flipper glass. No big deal.

No it doesn't.... problem is consistently it misses the first press (after 15 minutes complete vehicle shut down). The only time 2 times works consistently is right after you get out of the vehicle (and or the system is still awake).

I sort of figured it was something like this... I had an m5 with a wicked drain problem and I spent many an hour tricking it in and out of its sleep/wake cycle to figure out what was randomly waking up in the middle of the night.

Similar idea in reverse... it sleeps and doesn't wake up exactly as it should.
