Depress with your thumb? Pull up with your fingertips? Fit four fingers into the latch?
These are questions you’ll want to consider when you are looking for your next vehicle.
For me, the third option is best. I can slip four fingers right up to the knuckle into the door latch. This is far less of a strain on any one joint and makes opening the car door much easier.

Those small pill bottles with the safety caps can be impossible to open with fingers that are swollen, dislocated and/or deformed.
I’ve learned to ask the pharmacist for the chubby (pictured on the left), easy-off caps. Chubby makes it easier to hold and easy-off – well, that’s self-explanatory.
Keep safety in mind. If you have young children or pets at home, store your medication in an out-of-reach location.
