Why does a garage door remote open and close door successfully inside of the garage but really hard to open the door out of the garage?

Your car brand won't make any difference. It might be related to the batteries in the remote and the distance to the electronics inside the garage when the opener is outside. You could be trying to open the door from too far away if it happens when you are driving up to the house. If it happens sitting in the driveway check your owners manual in the troubleshooting section. Contact the installer or manufacturer if the manual doesn't help. Regardless, I would check the batteries in the remote first.
