Has anybody noticed that the lower corner of the door (at least the drivers door, I haven't checked the rest) is very sharp? Is there any kind of door trim/protector that can be added?

Only had the car 3 days and both my wife and I cut our legs.

Thanks for any thoughts/suggestions.

On my 3rd Enclave and never have had that problem. You can try something like AutoZone and see if they have
some type of plastic trim that that would fit over the edge.

Interesting...I never had a problem with this either. Also, I don't recall anyone else mentioning this issue before. :shrug:

Was the door ever repaired? I noticed that on parts of a mazda that I own. Most of the metal stampings had very sharp edges, but never encountered it on any other vehicle. My daughter even cut her foot on the left foot rest. Doing an oil change is like working around razor wire.

No repair that I'm aware of, but am definitely going to get it checked out.

The corners are dangerous. I've done it twice with minor cuts. Recently my wife required stitches after the door caught her leg.

Well, glad it's not just me, but of course sorry to hear about your cuts and your wife's stitches :(

Next time I'm at dealer I'll see if they have any suggestions. Otherwise I'm wondering if there is some sort of clear something (not sure what) that I can put on it. Even something like crazy glue or something, just to soften the edge a bit.

I had that problem with TWO Enclaves. That corner slices the skin right off my leg. It is on all doors.
