My new 2010 JK Sport 2-door requires a forceful slam in order to close well enough that the overhead courtesy light and "door" icon in dash goes off. This can be an issue when sloppy door closing leaves the courtesy light on, which can run your batery dead in short order. Is this door-closing issue an adjustment issue, or is the cabin so well-sealed that there's too much interior air pressure, kinda like the old Vokswagen beetle? It does seem to close more easily if I crack the window or leave the other door open. Anyne experience this? I would not have thought that a Jeep wrangler would ever claim that level of interior tightness.
Normal. Had my 10 Rubi for 3 weeks now and it's a bit better. However, you still have to close it with a bit more force than a normal car. The doors seal closed really well. This is normal, don't mess with the adjustment. In fact when I picked it up the dealer made sure to tell me that this would be normal. Just make sure you close the doors. I found that when getting into it close the door with your hand more towards the rear of the interior handle instead of the center. It closes better, meaning you won't have to open and close it again.
Your Jeep ain't like no sissy a$$ed Toyota or Honda. Nothing about my jeep says toy (in a matter of speaking). It is built like a truck, rides like a truck and goes where trucks don't go. I just slam it and when I forget and the door doesn't shut properly, I slam it harder. She seems to like it.
