Is my driver's door misaligned?

    My new Model S is about 3 weeks old now and I've had this issue lingering in my head from day one but I just haven't resolved it yet. Sometimes the door would require an extra try or two to close and would need extra force. The left part of the driver's door is sitting a little lower than the right as seen in the photo. The other doors on the car are perfectly leveled. I was just wondering if my door is actually misaligned and that it would be worth going to the service center in order to have it fixed.

    No, your trim is misaligned and this is a common issue. Schedule an appointment with the SC and they will take care of it. Mine was much worse than yours when I took delivery and now it's properly aligned.

    No, your door IS misaligned. That's why it won't shut correctly. The latch bolt isn't lining up right because of the sag. Look closely as you close the door at the latching bolt.
