problem #1

Aug 302011

Tribeca 6-cyl

  • 9,500 miles
While rounding a left hand turn at approximately 15- 20 mph, the passenger lowered the passenger door window using the power window switch- the door flew open, but was caught by the passenger grabbing the door, preventing it from hitting a telephone pole next to the roadway. The vehicle was then stopped and the driver exited vehicle and went to passenger side and attempted to close door, which would not latch and stay closed. After cycling the electric lock switch and then cycling the lock lever manually, the door closed and stayed shut. Upon arrival home to park car, passenger door would not open. Driver then cycled window closed and door lock released and door could be opened and closed. We have not received any recall notices from either the selling dealer or the manufacturer.
