Default Hatch only opens with key

I just purchased my 2007 black GT- Hatch will not unlock with door locks like my 03 did. I need to put in the key and turn it. Is this a mal function or is this normal ? Car is over 36 mos so nor warranty.

I have a 2006 base and the hatch only opens with the key. There isn't even a squeeze opener on the back of the hatch. You have to have the key turned as you lift the hatch. HTH

My 2007 unlocks the hatch when all the doors are unlocked wither with the fob or the unlock switch on the front doors.

The hatch should unlock with the rest of the doors. It does not have a traditional handle like the eariler Cruisers. It's a touch pad that you apply light pressure on with your finger tips to open the hatch.
