In cold, wet climates, the driver and passenger door handles may stick, jam, or not return to their rest position; improved handle release cables are available to correct this issue.

    I have had to actually Force the latch by holding the door closed from the exterior, lock the door manually with the key, unlock the door, re-enter the vehicle and close it. Once it warmed up, no problem. MASSIVE FRUSTRATION!

    My driver side door jammed too. The problem is the door would not close. I got out of the car and manually manipulated the door until it became workable again. I'm OK with this. I'm not OK with the two automatic doors failing because the pully cords snapped when temperatures dipped under 25 degrees. This is crazy. Does anyone else have this problem.

    Sliding door handles do not want to open especially when cold. This is a safety issue in my opinion. If you need to get into the car you cannot.......

    The side doors stick when it is cold and damp. The solution is to drive the car and wait for the heater to warm the door a bit. If you need to get in immediately, you have to enter from the front door and push from the inside.

    Power doors freeze and do not work in a reasonable amount of time (like easily 30 minutes after warmup). Driver/passenger freeze as well, but do eventually work (in a short amount of time).
