Topic: Opening the Downhill Side Door
Previous TopicNext TopicHelp
The car shown here is parked on a slight slope with the drivers side downhill. When the driver gets out, the door is only opened until it touches the pavement (shown in red circle). Then the car raises up because the drivers weight is removed. When the driver gets back in, his or her weight causes the door to strike the pavement. At the least, the paint on the bottom of the door will be scraped off.

More commonly, the tip of the door is bent inward. The obstacle under the door could be pavement or could be a big rock. Either will bend the door.

Get in the habit of watching where the door bottom is as you get in and out of your SUV. You may have to pull the door slightly closed as you get in to avoid damage to the bottom of the door.
