Driver's side door hard to open sometimes

Hi,

Twice lately it's been hard to open the driver's side door. The lever one squeezes will go in but it doesn't open the door. I try and try. I lock and unlock.

This was a problem occasionally in the winter when wearing gloves but now, when it's nice and warm out, I have to wonder if it's a design flaw.

I've never owned a car where it was hard to open the door. I think they should have done a better job with the mechanism, making it more positive.

Now, to top things off, one dealer is telling me the car is our of warranty. I bought it in May of 2011. Door handles are considered maintenance items? (Not a boot-to-bonnet 4 year warranty-covered item?) I'll check with another dealer. Maybe the first one just misread something.

Sigh.

John
