Sagging door?

Sorry if this has been covered before, I tried to search it but got google results instead of site results, think i screwed up!

So, my question is has anyone had trouble with their door hinges? My 2015 (bought new last feb) drivers door seems to drop a little when you open the door, and pops up a little when you close it. Had some old vehicles in the past (71 firebird) with worn out bushings and the feeling is similar...

Anyone else had that problem, or is it just me? Lol. I don't put any weight on the door either, just regular use. Still got lots of warranty anyway so I'll get them to check it the next time I have it in for service, just curious if its a common thing or anything?

Yeah, I think so too. Lol, I know it didn't do it when I bought it, and the drivers door is the only one that does it. Might even just be a striker adjustment or something simple. Pretty good though, almost a full year and 23000 km's and that is the only issue I've had, and it's not even an issue

Check to see if the hinge bolt is loose. When I first got mine, the front passenger door was dropping and making a popping sound when it swung out and then back in. I found a loose bolt there on the hinge, tightened it and haven't noticed anything since.
It's worth a look......

Thanks! I'll check that out when it warms up a little outside. I wouldn't doubt that's what the problem is, started doing it way too early to be a wear thing.
