    I'm not sure if it's just me but my driver's door "thunk" when closing sounds different than the other doors. It sounds like the latches aren't lined up and there is an extra effort compared to the others. I've looked at the latches and don't see any scaring or anything.

    Do any of your doors sounds funky when thunking?

    My right rear passenger took a little more effort to close. Turns out the patches weren’t aligned exactly right.

    Service appointment fixed it in about 10-15 minutes.

    Also I noticed these doors seem to take while to break in.
