Are stiff door hinges normal?

Post by mymangochutney » Fri Mar 08, 2019 4:40 pm

The rear doors aren't hard to close but they're much more stiff than any other car, I can't "slam" it shut since they'll just stop 3/4 of the way closed.

Is this by design? If not, do I have to put some special grease on the hinges?

My boyfriend's '13 also has stiff hinges, if that helps at all.

I have a '14 and had the same problem. I used liberal amounts of WD40 to get them to operate easy. I sprayed the hinges and worked the door open and closed (without closing it all the way) many times. They work as easy as the front ones do. They get stiff from lack of use.

I hit all me hinges with white lithium grease and worked them for a bit. Also trunk a hood hinges. All smooth as silk now.
