Seems to be fairly common. They probably could adjust the latch, but I would give it some time as the seals and hinges will break-in some and possibly have the issue go away.
Thank you for providing me with that information. I'll give it some time then as I didn't want to continue slamming the door and possibly damaging the hinges or locks.
Our delivery specialist told us the doors would be hard to close at first because the rubber seals on the doors were still so new.Does anyone have problems closing the car doors? I've noticed that I have to constantly slam the doors to get them shut. Is this normal or should I have Tesla take a look? I've only had the car for about a week.
Confirming what everyone is saying, the seals/rubbers just need some break-in period.Does anyone have problems closing the car doors? I've noticed that I have to constantly slam the doors to get them shut. Is this normal or should I have Tesla take a look? I've only had the car for about a week.
Ditto. LOLSame issue for me. Drivers door seems the worst. I find I am shutting it pretty hard and then notice later on the app that the door is still open. The gap at the top of the window is also larger when the door has not fully closed than on the S so this could be a real problem in the rain if you didn't notice.
I have to retrain myself because I try to be gentle with the Model S doors since I believe the retractable handles are sensitive to this. It's really hard telling my kids to slam the Model 3 car door after 5 years of constantly telling them the opposite with every other door in our life!
