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?

what do u want me to say?
If you slam the door shut, the soft close door wont activate and it will close like a normal door, however if you are to lightly close the door and let the latch catch, then the soft close doors will take over. Like I said before it's probably done to reduce wear and tear on the latches.
