does anyone else have an issue with the drivers door opening up if you apply any pressure down toward the hinges? If stopped it doesnt do it but numerous times I have to reach down and shut it back when cruising around.

I think the doors/hinges, are flimsy and junkie. Just wish they were more solid with less deflection in the hinge area.

Yes I did on the first day I took delivery but I noticed the door was some what loose in the hinges I could move it up and down like a half inch witch was enough to make it not latch so Picked up on the back of the door until it would latch and then tightened the bolts in the hinge. One side is a tamper proof torx and tHe other side a nut. I have the tools so I tightened it up.

Weird it's like that. Maybe it's possible they didn't apply any thread locker or anything to ensure it doesn't come loose like that?

Annoying problem to have. It sounds like something you could figure out a way to fix yourself though. Hopefully it is as easy as tightening up a couple nuts and bolts. Let us know if you get the problem fixed and how you did it.

Definitely is a case like that, any decent DIY'er can figure it out, not rocket science :D

It was a pretty simple adjustment, simply weren't tightened up enough, and I happen to be good at rocket science thank you very much
