weather strip issue

Has anyone had any issues with the weather striping falling off when you open the door?

It seems like every day my wife comes in and tells me something else going wrong with the car. We're going to make a list and take it to the dealer.

From what I recall we have:
Front end rattle
Transmission jerky
Nav/mft constantly freaking out, going blank, or losing information on screen
weather striping coming down


She really likes the car, but all these little issue are getting on my nerves!

Yes, there is another thread about this, I'll find a link. Essentially, it's from hitting it when you get in the car.

Most dealers won't give you hell if you're under warranty

That's the same piece I'm talking about, but not the same place. It's coming down up by the head liner.

Push it back on and quit grabbing it getting in and out. that fails try some contact cement. Be pro active.

Hi segen77,

Do you have any update on your weatherstripping concern? If you need my assistance, send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name; I'll look into some options.

Thanks!

Crystal
