I know that this does work, but many times I just want to open the liftgate to place something inside and then close liftgate and walk away. By unlocking the vehicle first, I then still have to press the lock button. Again, of course it's not the worst thing, but it's just amazing that after all this time, they still haven't corrected the problem. They just don't care.
