It's quite normal for the tailgate shocks to be stiffer when the temperature gets colder, all tailgate shocks do the same in every brand of S.U.V's. Mine does the same.
The first time you press your door lock/unlock button it unlocks only the drivers door on the second press it unlocks the other doors and the tailgate. Take your time. Mine does the same.
Can you imagine if the tailgate of the Equinox would have been made for 6 foot 5 people. My wife would need a little stool just to reach the handle to close it. She's 5 feet. Average people are not 6 foot 5.
For the center console power window buttons, I don't know how old you are but when the power window started on cars those buttons where all on the center console. G.M. might be going back in time here?
My Nox is a 05 and I love it like it is. You'll see, you'll get used to those power window buttons on the center console, practice your remote lock/unlock and you'll get the trick of it, for the tailgate shock the only thing is to wait or wish for some warmer weather.
Unfortunately, for your boyfriend he'll have to learn to lower his head when he's in that danger zone.

I work on the tailgates. My job is to put on the rear spoiler. I am 6 foot 5 . I raise about 200 hatches a day and some are stiff depending on how cloud the shock for the gate are after they come in from the truck. If you gate does not open climb into the back and look at the hatch you will see a plastic circle. Remove that and you need a flat screwdrive to press on the lock to open.
