2010 should be covered under warranty. At least I hope so.

It's the latch.
Good news: easy repair.
Bad news: door may pop open while you are driving & scare the bejesus out of you.
Happened 3x to my 2006.
Take it to dealer asap!

Mine went out, then came back and has worked okay since. But I;m thinking I better have them look at it. I would have thought that slamming it would latch it if the closer didn't work but if not, that's REALLY bad.

I got the usual "well, it's not showing any faults, and it's not doing it at the moment, so it must be okay. "What if it's a broken part? Do the faults indicate that?" "No" "So it could show no faults and fly open because of a broken part?" "well......we don't think so". So apparently, unless the door is hanging open, and the computer shows faults, it;s okay. I feel better now.
Is there a bulletin?
