Thumbs down Crew cab drivers door moving underway?

Driving the other day w/ the radio off on a road w/ your normal bumps from uneven pavement seams & black top patches. As I'm going along between 35-50 I hear what seems like the weather strip in the door rubbing. I placed my finger tips up in the seam of the door just above my shoulder making contact w/ the door & cab weather strip & I could feel the seam moving! I either have a loose hinge or a not so tight door latch or worst case scenario my crew cab itself is flexing. I'm pissed!!! Brand New Truck N this crap is added to the list! I was in my cousins 2009 F150 last night & all be it the ride was not as smooth as my ram but the damn cab made NO wind noise & no shaking or movement was heard inside his cab not to mention the radio was off due to the fact we were listening for a low drone noise he was complaining about which we believe is just the strap he has ratcheted in the bed vibrating from wind. I'm blogging this to see if anyone else has had this & if so have you corrected it & what was done to do so? Please any input would be appreciated. Thank you all.

As Naturecannon mentioned, take the truck in, that is what you have a new truck warranty for. The door will probably just need a slight adjustment for a better fit.

Mine does the same thing. But it doesn't do it all the time, thought about bringing it in but my luck it won't do it. So all I would get would be, could not duplicate issue. And I would just add that to the list of everything else that its been in for. If you do bring it to the dealership, please let me know how it goes.

I get a "rubbing" noise from what seems like is coming from between the dashboard and the windshield on the passenger side. My driver door also sticks out a little bit - to which I brought in to the Dealer and they said they fixed it "the best it could be fixed," which means they didn't do a damn thing and kept my truck for 2 days.

I would get it in too, that is not normal and don't let the dealer tell you so. Also if you are worried about the paint, babysit them and let them know that you'll be looking for dings and scratches. Sorry for the rant - just had mine in for an oil change and the scratched the grill.

Hey Niz have you posted any pics of your painted console? Looks great!

I may attempt adjusting the latch. I grabbed the door before I headed out earlier to see if the hinge side had any wiggle room. Nothing. It's solid So that means either the door latch may have some slack to be taken up or the body isn't put together correctly & no amount of adjustments will correct this issue.
I just don't trust the dealer to recognize the issue & there for they'll end up charging me for the diagnosis time $150.00 even if they can't pinpoint the issue that would be described in detail to them. In the end it'll be just like it was w/ my passenger side front fender. I adjusted that my self, seems i'll have to do the same w/ the door. I hate complaining about this truck because I love it so but really all this nonsense right from the factory or shortly there after. These issues I'd expect to find on a used vehicle w/ twice the mileage. I's just not cool.

I'm getting the slightest bit of wind noise from by driver side door and it does it all the time so a trip to the dealer might be soon for me.


I hate going to the dealer

I have zero issues here and i noticed my door doesnt sit flush has about a 1 mil raise different from the door behind it id assume to reduce the wind noise. but even at 160 its still pretty quiet in the truck with everything shut off
