I have seen this topic discussed in the past. I am a new member and trying
to get some old info on this seemingly, inherent problem with this model.
I went into my local coffee shop and came out trying to get into my car, the
normal way, through the drivers side door. It seems that the door is locked,
although it is not. I disassembled the door panel, as best as I could with
the door closed, but still cannot un-jamb the door, to open it.
Can someone shed some light on what I can do to open the door? Hopefully
someone who experienced this will reply and tell me exactly what they did.
Can anyone tell me what the problem is?
Thanks for any information anyone can give with this issue!!!

the garage had to remove the panel (as you say, the best they could), and
*drill out* the bolts holding the latch. Then it was a simple matter of
replacing the latch.
This is, apparently, an unfortunate common problem. Check this out (may be
