Default door sticks

well driver side door sticks to the point it feels like I'm going to rip the handle off, i have to pry it open at the top of door and use the handle . thought it was just a good seal (air tight). so i rolled down the window to kill any vacuum it might have and still no luck. i have looked and it looks like the door and latch are lined up right i have oiled the latching side
(door latch) so i am stumped? any one have a good idea as to what the problem might be please let me know
p.s. everything seem to be lined up right?

Do you have any problem opening it from the inside? I'm wondering if maybe your handle mechanism is a little off or broken somehow?

ive got the same problem, but not to the point where it rips the handle off. I figured the latches were catching a little.

with mine during the cold weather the rubber seal on the door sticks . try putting any kind of oil or lube to the rubber and that might solve the problem

If it's working from the inside, you can always pop the door panel off and take a look inside the door to see if there is anything wrong with the external handle mechanism.

I found out why mine was sticking, the weather stripping on the a pillar was rubbing on the door.

well I noticed paint missing on my a pillar and found some of it on the weather stripping, try to find something like that, you could try to grind down where its rubbing I guess.

you need to get your door re-aligned at the dealer.

I had a big problem with mine not wanting to close, it sucks.
