I'm not completely sold on comfort access. It is some quirks that are not convenient nor comforting, specifically it doesn't work every time. On more than a few occasions my finger is on the ridge and the doors won't unlock. I'm standing there trying and trying to unlock my doors with the CA method. Then if I switch hands, it WORKS. WTF! Sometimes it's a switch to my left hand, others to my right.

Also on a few occasions, I get out of the car, use the ridge to lock it up, but I forgot something, so I use the ridge to unlock, NOTHING. Try it again, nothing.
Wait a few more seconds, then it opens.
It seems that once you lock the car with CA, 5-10 seconds have to pass before you touch it again for it to work. If you touch it too quickly after locking, it doesn't respond.
Mine works perfectly 100% of the time. To open, I grab the handle, it unlocks and in I go. To lock, I touch the ridge, it locks and off I go. If I forgot something, I grab the handle again, it will unlock. I get what I forgot, touch the ridge, it locks, and off I go.

Now- the "kick your foot under the trunk to open" feature is totally hit or miss. I'm getting better at it though, but I'm not convinced I know the "secret"since I cant get it to work 100% of the time like the doors.
