Drivers door most annoying
 
Haven't found anything I don't like about the jeep so far, besides the fact the drivers door doesn't stay open when you get out. It always wants to come flying back at you, even on level ground. Wish they had a better hold or lock feature.

I have only had mine for 2 days now, but I have not noticed this. My driver door stays open everytime.

it's one of the things I HATE about my WK too.
If you "bounce" it all all against the stop, the middle detent doesn't hold it and it comes back at you trying to close.

It usually happens when I've got my hands full because I'm kinda pushing with my elbow.

Most annoying.

I know what you guys are saying, all you gotta do is just put it on the middle detent, if not you get a 300 lb door flying back at you :lol:

I find once it's on the detent it wont move even on steep inclines.

Maybe it's just mine. I have a friend with a wk and haven't noticed it on his. The wk doors seem much lighter....the wk2 doors seem twice as heavy. I think that is why they seem to swing back. Guess maybe I fing mine open to quickly, I have to open it so slowly to get them to stay open.

+1.

It almost hit me the other day when I opened and door and then turned around to get something while my left leg was outside. Darn it would hurt.

Also the cup holder on the front doors are not straight. It is impossible to put open cups in there.

I think the door cup holders are designed more for drink bottles...

That's a pity. I like putting drinks in there when driving through. I worry it may spill at the center console.

I think if take a closer look at that "bottle pocket" you will see an icon that means you shouldn't put your drink cups there.

Interesting...
I have this problem with my 2007 WK Limited, but not on either of my WK2 Overlands.
