Hey, my QC does this exact same thing! It's not a major issue, what causes the noise is not the striker, it is the outtermost door seal. If you watch it closely, it get's slightly stuck on the C-pillar when you open the door. If you open it more quickly, you'll notice a louder pop, as the seal slaps back into place against the door.

You could fix it a couple of different ways.

1: Re-shim the door so that it doesn't close quite as much.

2: Trim the weather stripping very slightly.

3 & MOST EASILY!: Put some silicone lube on the seal. No only will it help the seal last longer, it will keep it from sticking to the C-pillar and then slapping against the door.

Good luck!
