one side of my car has been bugging me for a while and I wondered if you guys can take a look at this and let me know if it can be readjusted or should I just live with it. you can see how the gap changes.....

That would bug me....if you're still under warranty - have the dealer address it.

I agree the reveal isn't very good for that door. It can be a pain to adjust. You adjust it in once place and it ends up worse some where else. I'd probably say just leave it alone.

What does the door gap look like towards the back of the door, by the door handle? Is that even?

Yeah that would bug me as I have had mine in for misaligned panels and if you do just hope they have a body shop do it and not the mechanics, and check for dents when they're done.

Take it to the dealer if its under warranty. Mine had a similar problem and was adjusted at my local dealer. The whole process took about an hour with Chrysler approving the claim and the dealer adjusting it.

I doubt most people would notice but...you're not most people. If it bugs you, have it adjusted. If not under warranty, ask a body shop. Might just be a matter of a few shims or simply losening bottom hinge and tightening top. Good luck!

That would bother me too. Warranty wont cover it but a good body guy can adjust it like new for you.

going there today, I'll post what they say
fyi, the look on the other side of the same door is perfect, so I'm afraid if they adjust that side, it will throw off the other side...I guess we'll see
