    At delivery, I was told one way to open the charger door is to touch it with your finger. When my door didn't open that way I was told to have it looked at.

    What is your experience with this?

    You're sure they weren't just referring to the regular doors? Never heard of touching the charge port door. Just "auto" opens when you push the button on top of the charging cable that comes with your S. Or "touching" the icon on the center screen that says "charge port."

    Just make sure the car is unlocked. Works for me.

    Yes, works fine for me. It's more of a push rather than a touch.

    I was going to say: it's not touch-capable...rather you probably just push it in a little bit to unlatch it, like the fuel door on some cars.
