This is a serious potential safety hazard. I was unable to get to my daughter and get her out of the vehicle because of the sliding side doors sticking. Had there been an emergency, who knows what could have happened. Honda looked at it and lubed the door. I looked online and found many other consumers with the same complaint. This is very serious and please investigate as this could be a matter of life or death.

The passenger side door opens and closes intermittently. The consumer's wife pushed the button for the automatic door to open, but the sliding doors only opened a few inches. When the consumer tried to open the door, the door closed on his fingers. The dealership is aware of the problem. Ts scc
