Well first of all being an ex BMW Master tech I know how to fix cars and what breaks them. Usage. Every time those lock motors go up and down they are wearing inside. The less use the longer they last. You have to realize I just traded an almost 15 year old GC Laredo in on this and keep my cars for a long time. Where I live we really don't have a problem with someone trying to carjack you and in my case if they did they would be looking down the barrel of a .40 cal. Glock. So I don't have that worry I just don't want to wear out my locks.
