If you firmly close the door, it just closes like a normal door. Is this normal?
what did you want it to do? to open back up and then close automatically

mine actually did open by itself and the soft close feature pulled the door closed, that was cool,

the only thing is that i was going 60mph

really so sometimes the soft close door feature doesnt work?
