    My driver door also needs a little force to close but it is tightly closed with no wind noise at highway speed

    Funny you should ask. I had my 2019 for 5 months and never failed to close the door all the way. On my 2020 about half of the time the door doesn’t shut all the way. I have to open it back and shut it again. It’s not a problem. It’s just tighter and requires a little more force to close.

    They may have tightened tolerances up some or made the seals thicker. I know they made the side windows thicker to help reduce noise, so that was a concern and not surprising that they may have made other smaller tweaks as well.

    This is true for my PRO.

    You have to slam the door to get it to close. All the doors for that matter.

    Every Toyota that I have owned, when the air vent is open the doors are easy to close. When the air vent is set to recirculate, it takes more force to close the doors.

    I recently purchased a 2020 TRD OR and my driver's door does just the same as yours. However there is no way would I let a dealer f**k with it in any case. I just have to give a little more force unless a window is down or another door is already open. I have actually got use to it and just give that door a little extra push when closing.

    Re: wind noise/ hard to shut doors

    Something was probably changed for wind noise purposes- firmer seal, one less vent hole in the seal, door adjustment process was changed, etc. If you could see how that is adjusted on other cars, you'd be horrified. It's enjoyable to do when you're angry, I'll leave it at that.

    A normal situation would go like this: Top rear of the door gap off? Over flush on top and pulled in at the bottom? Bend the bottom out until it's even, adjust door in or out at the striker, adjust closing force. Bend, slam, over-extend, whatever you need to do. The noises are horrifying too, at first. Once you remember cars are just shiny sheet metal, it makes a lot more sense. Same for hoods, hatches, etc. A twist here, a shove there and it's like magic. I'm usually watching, I'm not too fond of doing it.

    Whichever door is last to close, if you do it too lightly. My guess is the air seal is strong and the cabin air acts as a cushion.

    Yep, I can concur that the 2020 doors are harder to close than the previous years. I have to put a little bit more effort into closing it or it will not close all the way. I suspecting the stronger rubber air seals as well.

    Just came back from the dealer for the power tailgate lock installation. $169 + labor. Supposedly the lead auto tech took on the project by reading 23-page install guide and working on it for 3 hrs. Amazing job w/ no traces of wires visible anywhere! I would highly recommend it at the Toyo dealer. Part and service are under warranty.

    Me too on the door!!! I thought it was just me, no issue on a 17 with same force. I noticed when another door is open, its much easier so im thinking its a different pressure flap vent thing.

    This may be a good thing. If they stiffened or changed the cab vents it will likely reduce the noise levels that are/were present in the 16- 19's.

    Possibly keeping the climate controls on default of position of open rather than recirculate may help the pressure when the last door closes.

    On the TFL video posted a while back the Toyota dude said they reduced wind/road noise in the 2020's. So maybe whatever they did to achieve that is what you all are experiencing.
