I definitely wasnít complaining, just making an observation. When I was looking at different cars, there were a couple that had the feature where the door unlocks if you put your hand into the handle ďpocketĒ. You donít even have to touch the handle and it will unlock. Then you just pull the handle and the door opens. Itís no big deal to me to push the unlock button with my thumb on my Niro. As a matter of fact, Iím so used to using the remote to unlock, half the time Iím pulling my keys out of my pocket to hit that button.
