Driver's side door hard to open sometimes
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.
