Anyone else here had this problem? As soon as it gets a couple degrees below zero (C), I can open my door, get in the car, close the door and everything is fine... until I pull the inside door handle. At this point the door will not latch shut again. It's going to the dealer today (ABS light is on too). I actually went by another dealer (not where I bought it from) and told the service manager about the door, and his response was "Well, mine freezes up too". Gotta love the attitude. It's Canada for chrissakes, it gets cold here occasionally, even in Vancouver.

Sounds like an issue with improper grease being used (if it is really REALLY cold) that or just poor tolerances in the door mechanism that is causing the latch not to close when it shrinks with the cold.
