Dizzy Front Passenger Side Door Hitting Fender

The front passenger side door is hitting the fender on my 2008 Saturn Vue. It appears as if the clearance is too tight so there is contact when the door is opened. Anyone also having this problem? It hits just above the fake door venting panel. The dealer told me he has seen other Vues with this problem.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

... and he mentioned that because he's going to fix it all under warranty or to see if you accept that they often come that way? They don't!

Pick up a coffee & a couple of donuts for your friendly, neighborhood Saturn Service Advisor & ask them fix the hinges which must be out of spec & take care of any rub areas. I'm sure they will...

Then they should have a lot of experience correcting this ... they do find and fix all such things in their 500-point pre-delivery inspection, don't they???

Thanks for the input by other members. I just dropped the car off today and I was assured that the problem would be fixed. The dealer body shop last week did a half-aXXed repair by cutting the primer and paint down then touching it up with paint to get rid of the 1/8 inch front edge of my door that was hitting the fender edge just above the fake air vent. I'll let you know what they did to repair it. I am damned mad because I paid cash savings with a trade in on this vehicle and get repairs half axxed like I leased it and don't give a damn. My last vehicle a Pontiac Aztek was built much better.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

My awesome dealer service department made certain that the body shop repaired my car to "as new should be" condition!

I bet you can find a great deal on a pre-owned "quality built", and highly stylish, Pontiac Aztek.
