    Is there a simple way to adjust a Tacoma's door? My drivers door is noticeably more difficult to shut than the other 3 doors. They shut so nice and quiet but the drivers door takes a little extra slam to get it shut. It's like it's not perfectly aligned or something... I've lubed the heck out of the latches and no improvement. Any way to adjust?

    Being as it is new, take it to the dealer and let them look at it. Otherwise, you can move the door latch a little bit.

    Not to state the obvious, but if the drivers door is the last one to be shut, it will always feel 'harder' to shut.

    Open another door (or window) and then try shutting the driver door again and see if it makes a difference when air can escape from elsewhere.

    Doesn't matter if a window is open, it's tighter at the latch than the others.

    Take it in. Let them deal with it if you tried what you already have tried.
