Default Rear left door not shutting sometimes

Does anyone have this problem with their rear left door? When ever you shut it, it half ways shuts unless you close it pretty hard. Could anyone help me out please??

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I find I'm still getting used to the polymer doors taking more force to close than typical steel doors due to their lighter weight. Other than that, no real problems here.

I have a Redline QC and I find that I have to really slam the driver's side back door or I'll hear a lot of extra wind noise. When opening the driver's side back door, half the time, I have to pull the handle and also pull from the top of the door because it sticks. My passenger's side back door works just fine though. I only need to open from the handle every time.

Heh, that's pretty interesting, So, if you drive into a lake it should float pretty long then. That's always nice to know.

Barry, the dealer can say "air-tight" but it doesn't apply to the back door not closing completely and then sticking when trying to open. The front door is always open when you open and close the rear door - so "air-tight" would only apply to the front door not closing properly.
