The problem could be caused by under-engineered front hinges. It's just something I've learned to live with.

I think your check strap may be worn out, the check strap is that peice that is attached to hinge pillar and slides in and out of the door.

I have the same problem with my EA. It annoys any passengers more than me, because like Jack I've learned to live with it.

its not the check strap itself, but the thing that goes on the inside of it. mine is missing on the passenger door - i tryed to compensate by bending out the check strap but it didnt work. you could try getting one from a wrecker and installing it - its two bolts, after you gain access to the back of it (glove box is in the way).
