My driver and driver side back door will not unlock or lock with remote. Very frustrating! This isn't a problem that should be happening with out being part of a recall and Cadillac fixing for free. I'm being quoted a ridiculous price to have them fixed. This is the first Cadillac I've owned and reminds me why I prefer Nissans. Never had ANY electrical problems or ANY problems for that matter with my Nissans and I've owned 18 Nissans; some older and some newer. This is NOT luxury! #JUNK
