: Door Locks Jam?

Here's an odd thing that I have noticed from time to time. Sometimes the door locks (both drivers and passenger side front) gets jammed halfway between opened and locked. To free the door, I have to pull the manual button up and down until it is free.

The funny thing is, this never happens to me, and I drive the Catera every day. But if someone else drives it, like my son or wife, there is a good chance it will happen. Just today, I took the car for a state inspection and the inspector managed to get the door jammed after he was backed out of the bay. I had to "rescue" him. The only thing I can think of is that they grab the door handle before the automatic lock has fully opened.

Does this happen to anyone else?
