    Passenger power sliding door would close tight and 5 seconds later slightly open. Dealer replaced motor, telling me it was weak and would no longer hold door tight. Cost to replace motor and door rollers $800. Then 2 weeks later driver side has same issue. Looks like another trip to dealer and anothe $800. I did try the "fuse pull" repair trick, no luck with that. I can't believe I'm the only one with this issue! I have been in love with my van until this month... 2 power door repairs, timing belt, 4 new brake rotors & pads, PAX tires. Spending $4,000+ isn't what I had in mind.

    Drivers side sliding door will not close with dash button and will not close automatically with handle. Door will manually close though. There is a sliding door light illuminated on dash.

    I have had problems with both doors not latching all the way and only one door will work at a time, so for one month or so one door will open only and then it will switch and only the other door will open. The kids are always running around the car trying to get it. And there is a loud beeping to tell to that the door isn't latched all the way. I will never have automatic doors on my van again.

    Drivers side door had to be realigned as it made a clunking sound when closing.

    Both sliding glass doors do not activate to open or close, however if manually closed all the way it will activate to pull the door in to fully close.

    Doors require aggressive manual closing initially before automatic feature kicks in.
