Anyone had Creaking doors?

Has anyone on this forum had creaking doors. It happens when the door rubs on the body when the car goes over bumps/uneven roads, causing torsional flex and thus the doors to rub on the body and make a nasty sound - I've had it happen on all four!

Dealer fixed it once but the problem came back so now they're putting teflon tape in there....anyone else had this prob?

i have this problem if i go too fast down a road near me, but that is to be expected in a vert...

weird that it would happen in a sedan though!

yes I have this problem as well. Had the dealership look at it at my first scheduled oil change; they retorqued the door/lock striker plates (there's a TSB for this) and relubed the seals. The problem has been largely fixed save for a recurring problem on my front passenger door.
