    Since my car was about a week old I've noticed that the charge door was not opening smoothly. It would slow down midway through opening. No issues when closing.

    Then a couple of days ago the door began stopping completely when halfway open, I have to manually open it the rest of the way. Today the charge port light turned red.

    I already have a mobile service appointment for Friday for an unrelated issue and I'll have them take a look at it then. Has anyone else had this issue?
