I hate this.!

I hate having to pull my door handle twice to get out. It is really a major inconvience and pisses me off. Is there any way I can get rid of this? How would I do that? Everyone said I would get used to it but I just have not.

Why this is inconvience ?To me this option is the best .
Let me ask you this ,if you driver other cars when the doors already lock ,what do you do to get the door unlock? you still have to hit the unlock button on the door or dashboard to get them unlock right? I don't see why this is inconvience.

Or get it program ( auto unlock) like other was said.

Most cars even if the door is locked will open and then unlock that door when the interior handle is pulled.

I think its just because I am not used to it but I cannot stand it. It also confuses all my passengers as none of them have ever had to do it with their car. Is it programmable yourself or do I have to take it to the dealership?
