For those of us in parts of the world who get the three door variant, i imagine the sagging issue is unique to this version. The doors are very heavy on the three door and as a result we've had the drivers door sag quite early on. It's a simple matter of tightening one of the two retaining nuts on the hinge support. See pic for what happens. In our case it's the top nut that comes loose. A few seconds later with a spanner and you're all set. I'm considering putting some form of tightening agent on it as well but it's good for now. The door usually starts to make interior rubbing rattle sounds while driving, being the plastics bumping each other. Then you'll notice it when the door's open.

Worth checking out for those who own the five door too.

Great pick-up, Oz. Thanks for that. I'll be checking out the doors when I next get to wash my wife's SLS.
