Wind Noise and/or Water Leak Due to Weatherstrip Issue on Dodge Intrepid

Door weatherstrips mounted on the body tend to shrink with age, leaving gaps that can create wind noise or allow water to leak into the car. Our technicians suggest the door weatherstrips should be replaced to correct these issues.

Has been a problem since I boight this car at 89000 miles. Did some research and found this problem exist on almost all intrepids and even if you get it replaced it will happen again. Seems like dodge did it on purpose to drive sales of aftermarket parts. The only fix I know of is to cut the weather stripping in a corner, stretch it and fill the gap with a quick drying caulk of some sort or simply buy replacement stripping from someone other than dodge.
