Door problems anyone?

this problem is intermittent.

go to close the door and it doesnt latch. it bounces of the car and open again. then at times I cant open the door from the inside or outside when it is closed and unlocked. playing with the locking mechanism does not seem to help but repeated use of the door handle seems to get it to finally catch.

all of this seems to defy logic as to how the mechanics work for the door so I think is a combination of two things sticking.


anyone with a similar problem or fix?

had a similar incident on another car I used to own. Have them check the hinges. I found these were not aligned correctly. It takes some time to get it right. That might be a fix.

I have noticed both of my outside door handles aren't returning to their original position when pulled. Maybe this has something to do with it but, I would bet Doc is right with the door hinges.
