I agree, we were really spoiled by my last car. Spouse dreads touch the dirty underside of the hatch every time we need to open it. And me too to be honest... although it reminds me to to wipe the back cameras...Just wondering why they did not include a remote hatch opener on the fob or even a button in the interior to open the hatch. Only way to open it is to stand next to it and press the button on the hatch.
I've come across several places now that mention the Bolt as having a power liftgate and remote trunk release:
is this fancy marketing speak for the button on the back?
