I HAD the same problem as you guys are having. It was so bad that at times the doors would not open. The handles would pull out till they hit their stops and the doors still wouldn't open. This is probally where your doors are all headed, dread the feeling of having to crawl across to get into the drivers seat.
There is a fix though. I took mine to the stealership (I'm still under warranty) It has nothing to do with a door alignment, that mechanic should be beaten. It is just one part that causes it, I am not sure which one it is I have to go down to my car and look at the invoices to make sure. But it was something as simple as the lock actuator or the actual door handle guts. It took them maybe an hour to do both handles. Now it works like a dream! I will look today and tell you which part it is you have to buy.

It only costs me $50 bucks a visit, no matter how big the problem is or how many problems I bring in at once. I could need a new engine, new doors, and new suspension and I would get it for only 50 bucks. But it only lasts for a couple more months. I am hoping the engine goes and I can get a new one before the warranty is up. By the way delmarco I am installing those speakers today and they will be in the mail on monday!
