Keyless entry advice appreciated

After months of indecision, finally got a 2.5 year old Grand Espace 2.2dCi Initiale on Monday. However, I already seem to be having problems with keyless locking etc. Car seems to lock when I walk away with key - locks whir, car beeps and lights flash as per handbook. However, if I return to car WITHOUT key and pull on drivers door handle twice, door opens. Car will start without key being in slot, so handsfree operation does seem to be enabled.

Given the large number of posts to the forums about problems with keyless / handsfree operation, do people suggest that I should get the dealer to fix this under warranty or is the system so unreliable that I would be better off just using the keycard as a normal remote to deadlock the car?

Any advice to a new Renault owner would be gratefully appreciated ....
