    I usually need to wait 5~10 seconds after grasping the handle (with thumb pressing the button), until the locking mechanism releases it; but some times it takes much longer, like 20~30 seconds. Am I doing anything wrong? is there a fix?

    I always made sure the doors are unlocked before attempting the unplugging.

    Get in touch with service because it should be almost instant. It's been almost instant for me, rarely do I have to wait.

    @CME, what you describe is not normal behavior. Contact your Service Center.

    After talking to people, I've discovered that push-before-Pull strategy works very well, my handle is no longer stuck in the charging port !!
