    8.0 installed Friday and I never had this problem before. Coincidence, perhaps. Every few door shuts, the driver door doesn't pull in the last 1/4" like it's supposed to, leaving the car unlocked. This happens both if I shut it or if the car shuts it. Anyone else with the same issue?

    I suspect it's not related to 8.0. Does it click repeatedly when it gets close to closing? I suspect you have a bad door latch and it just coincidentally happened to fail at the same time you updated firmware.

    No clicking that I've noticed, but it's possible I'm missing it. This one was replaced a month or two ago for other faults so I was hoping it was software :-(

    For others that read this in the future and have the problem, get it looked at ASAP. I had an appointment scheduled but it failed before that, leaving the driver door stuck open and the car undriveable & towed at a very inconvenient time. Less than a week between first noticing it & complete failure.
