I have about 1,100 miles on my 17' Premier and have a bit of an annoying problem with it involving closing the doors. We also have a 17 LT. On the Premier when it is warm outside, and the car interior has heated up, you literally have to slam the doors really hard to get them to latch. This is on both of the front doors. If a window is down, you can close the doors very softly and they close fine. The 17 LT does not appear to have the same issue which is interesting. Does anyone else have this? It seems like the car is too air tight and causes resistance to the door closing. Considering taking it to the dealer, but already know it'll probably be seen as a "silly" issue that they can't replicate, but it's really annoying.

It's 100% stock. I have seen this vent on past cars, seems like it's usually in the trunk area. That is kind of where my mind was going too. I haven't taken off any of the interior panels on the Cruze yet to see if I can find it.

I wanted to followup on this thread to report that the issue seems to have (mostly) subsided with a bit more use of the car and age. I haven't consciously noticed having to slam the door harder to get it to latch like I did before. Seems the suggestion about the seals needing time to break in is correct. Also, the other Cruze that didn't have the issue has a build date of 8/16. My Premier that did have the problem was 11/16. Those few months difference in age just may have been the difference between the doors sealing.
