Update to my door issue

I picked up my car yesterday and the service advisor said they made some kind of adjustment to the catch mechanism on the driver's side door. Now it closes fine but it still doesn't have that solid feel to it that I expect. We will give it some time and see.

On the passenger side they side the latch was fine but the upper corner of the window (on the left as you look at the car) could be pushing against the seal. One closing, this could prevent the door from fully shutting without a firm push. They didn't want to mess with it as anything they changed would throw the rest of the door out of balance. The SA told me it should get better with time. Looking at the way the door it, I can accept that description of what is going on and that it may "wear in". We shall see.
