Passenger door would be even bigger safety issue if you are driving by yourself. At least with driver's door you can "catch it"
Dude, you already did your condescending dismissive gatekeeping in this thread...I get that you don't want the car to get a bad name, and I get your frustration with people who just haven't read the manual, and maybe that first-time poster above really is part of a spamming conspiracy...but why can't you just let us grownups with actual problems discuss them in peace?These doors take some getting used to for opening them so naturally people are immediately jumping to its a “problem.”We ALL had to get used to them. I think they my call it “progress.” Glad it wasn’t just my generation that gets caught! 🤣
Now you doors flying open well I am pretty sure the computer logs that so it shouldn’t be a problem to fix the few newbies reporting that. But in fact that hasn’t been a problem since the 1960’s or 1970’s as far as I have ever heard.
Not sure I read that correctly, but reading all these threads regarding the handles has always been odd to me. Still waiting on my ID, which is going to enter production in two weeks, but I did have one for a testdrive overnight. Plenty of stops and switching the driver multiple times, someone on the backseat.So you are saying that a single one of VW ID.4 drivers have not had to learn how to use these handles? I call BS
ID.4 doors don't work like every other door you've used all of your life. On the doors you've used all of your life, you pull on a door handle and the door handle moves a significant distance as it actuates the mechanical door latch release. On the ID.4, the door handle moves a smidgen and (usually,) electronics triggers the release of the door latch. If that fails, the ID.4 then lets you pull the handle further and mechanically release the door latch in the conventional fashion.No one noticed anything new/different/odd about how the doors operate. I just used them like I've used car doors all my life. Granted, we didn't use keyless entry, but I don't think that changes anything?
Nah, don't worry. When working properly, I think the doors are kind of cool with their power-assist. The troll was just insinuating that some of us with faulty or malfunctioning doors just haven't adapted to some of the car's quirks. Then threw out that nonsensical straw-man argument because he seems to like being manipulative and obtuse.Merely wondered about all the various comments about that something needs to be learned to open the doors.
I just experienced the same issue.I am over month waiting for part now, starting to enjoy the loaner simplicity
According to my initial service request they listed handle needed replacement but I insisted they would check again. They also had another car at the same time with same issue so I assumed they are aware of all parts neededI just experienced the same issue.
What part did the dealer order?
You are not enjoying normal door handle and touch lock that works?I can't say I'm enjoying the Tiguan loaner,
I got an update of February 8th today as well. Not much hope though especially when someone mentioned they are going to redesign the part in another thread...I'm only 8 days in, and I can't say I'm enjoying the Tiguan loaner, considering I just paid $50 to fill the gas tank. I got a response today that they have "only an estimate" of Feb. 8th... All I know is they're waiting for a backordered handle, though I should probably get some more details in writing. No - what I really need to get are my carseats back! At least I know the car is unlocked... and apparently the door is open, at leas according to the app.
