    I updated to 5.8 (1.39.60) two days ago. Now I have TWICE had the rear passenger door pop open slightly when I put the car into P. I've driven about 10 times, so it's less then half the time. I will inquire with the service center if the old-style door handle is the issue.

    I've only ever known it to happen because as the door handle extends (which happens when you put it in park), it triggers the sensor that's used in detecting a pull so the car thinks someone's pulling on the handle. Interesting though that it's not happening at other times (I'm assuming) -- e.g. unlocking the car.

    OK , I went to Tesla Service Queens and they changed the insides of the front passenger door handle. So the handle doesn't open when I put in park. It took them like 4 hours , fixing it then a test drive, it took the whole day 9-5.
