    Sorry if this is dumb question. I like closing my drivers door manually and very softly place it at the point where the door sucks itself in, but the auto door does it alot harder when i press the brake. So whats the correct way ? Is there a correct way ? Just wondering if theres a better system for the latches?

    I think you're doing it right. When inside the car I prefer to use the screen buttons to open and close the doors though for driver door I use the brake pedal. We are also getting used to using the key fob to let the car close the doors.

    I'm not aware of any way being more correct than the others.
    • You can manually close it to the point where the door sucks itself in.
    • You can press the center screen button to have motors close the door.
    • You can press the brake pedal to have the motors close the drivers door.
    • You can press the key fob to have the motors close all the doors.
    • You can pull the interior handle once to have the motors close the door.
    • You can press the exterior door handle "button" to have the motors close the door.
