the drivers door has been sticking on me lately to the extent that some days i have to get in through the passenger door. it started with the cold weather which is understandable then stopped but the last couple of days it is doing it again despite being quite mild. anyone else had this problem.

I get this problem as well,although I have always been able to open the drivers door,the handle I find gets very stiff to open on cold wet days,when it is warm and dry it seems to be fine.I need to visit the dealers but just haven't had the time to get there.

i get same with passenger side. Same, need 2 take to the dealers.

Same passenger side door handle always been sticking but I haven't noticed getting any worse because of the weather. Never thought of asking to our dealer but might do now that she will be taken in for 2 days.

Interesting, I thought something might be wrong with handle bar as when you pull it almost feels the car is locked but it actually isn't. so kinda need to give it a good pull then opens fine.

Had this problem when we first had car, my Wife could not get out [drivers door] same problem getting in. Had it sorted whilst it was in for other repairs. However i have noticed that both door handles seem stiff again, will keep an eye on it.
