When you do close the door, does it close smoothly or rough, like bangs, doesn't sound 'correct' when you shut it.

Recall is for the back doors of the sedan. Sorry, not a freebie fix.

I've had the same problem with my rear left side passenger door too. I took it to the dealer and the quoted me over 200, so I just left it. I just have to keep opening door from inside, if I passengers are getting in. Let me know what you find out.

door shuts clean, handle seems loose sometimes....im kinda thinking its something to do with cold weather, today was warmer and i had no trouble with it...........when there is a problem though, i can move the door handle around and it wont engage anything inside the door....i can unlock and lock, but i cant open

ahh, back to the part about not shutting from the inside, a lot of the time i have to lock the door for the door to latch, otherwise it just bangs the connectors, i wanted to look at it today with it being warmer but its not messed up today.....mood swings?
