So I left Old Chicago last night, and when I got out to the lot I noticed that my rear driver's side door was ajar. When I went in an hour earlier, I'm 100% certain it was closed and locked. When I tried to close it, the latch would not engage and the door would bounce back.

I manually moved the latch through its ROM just fine, but it would not secure. Drove half way home holding it shut (mad contortion skill btw). Cranked the heat for a bit and it secured.

Anyone else experience a faulty latch that acts up in cold temps? Dealer said if it happens again they'll replace it, but I'd prefer not to get my crap stolen before that happens.

Mine likes to stick and when I try to close the door... it just bounces.

I have to grab the exterior handle and rack it in and out a bunch of times before it'll work.
