It works for me 100% of the time if I do this (i.e., the proper way to use it). It's one of my favorite features of the car. You never have to take your keys out of your pocket. It would be a bit annoying to have a push start car that required you to take your keys out of your pocket solely to unlock it.

Sorry some people have issues, I'm sure there is some sensor issue of sorts and it is fixable by the dealer.
If its not working its 100% user error.

CA is very finicky.

Don't use your thumb to open it (open palm open, takes 1 second)...and use one finger to lock on the raised ridged area...
