I confirmed last week without the premium package, thinking I could live with the manual lift gate. Went to the SC today to try it out because it's been bugging me... I did not like it at all. I'm pretty petite at 5'1" but in pretty good shape so thought I wouldn't have an issue. WRONG! Opening is not too bad, but closing it felt heavy to me and I don't even want to think of the scratches there will be from my rings and having to shut the trunk firmly. I have LOVED everything about Tesla and have promoted them every chance I get. So I find myself in unfamiliar territory with the feeling of resent and anger towards Tesla for most likely forcing me to spend $3,000 (plus the change fee) for the one thing I want in the package..a power lift gate.. and for something I don't like the look of..the alcantara headliner. Venting done...hopefully something changes before my car goes into production but this whole issue has left a scar against Tesla in my eyes.
