Tell her to close the door properly and it won't open around corners?

Check her medication....maybe she's trying to throw herself out the door of a moving vehicle and hasn't quite got it right yet.

Just a thought.

Sounds like the sensor in the door frame or door magnet came loose. Then again the subframe may be twisting. I suggest getting her a new truck and stay away from the windstars.

It might be quicker just to list things that aren't wrong with a Windstar.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
