One of the things that bugs me about this car is the cheap-o charging port. Others have complained about the cheesy plastic covers, but lately I've had some trouble getting the door to pop open. And it's not even freezing out, but it just doesn't come open sometimes, so there I am pushing on the hinge side and using a car key to try and pry the door open. Sucks.... I couldn't find a release lever under the hood, but I would hope that there would be some way to jimmy that open when it gets stuck and your tool-less? I suppose some silicon lubricant on the hinge would do the trick, but maybe I'll just wait until the 7,500 mile checkup and see what the dealership says.
