Hi everyone
Has anyone had a problem with the door lock sticking open?
The other day both myself and the wife went out, she got in the driver seat and I got in the passenger seat, closed the door as usual but when driving down the road the passenger door flew open, I grabbed the door closed but it wouldn't lock shut, when we pulled over I found the external handle was stuck in the out position, the handle has been stuck twice since, we will get it seen too, but it's not good that a simple fault could in effect cause someone to get hurt, what if kids had been in the back seat and it was the back door had the problem?

Exactly what happened to us, going round a bend, thing is we didn't know it wasn't shut, no lights, nothing, it even sounded like it shut....

I'm wondering if that's why it happened to me, after all she keeps telling me I'm worth more dead than alive

Handle did it again, found that the part of the handle that comes out forces itself against the part that is fixed, seems that the handle is slightly loose and moves around....

They have to sort it, it's dangerous ( another song came to mind by Limpbiskit )

I would urge everybody who has had this issue to report it to their dealer and make sure they report back to Vauxhall, as this is a potentially dangerous problem, and by doing so just may save someones life! It is this type of problem that manufacturers usually jump on pretty quickly.
