Maybe it's normal, but the power doors in my 2002 EX-L open nice and smooth, but clunk when they come fully open, like the motors are shutting off a half second late. Any thoughts on whether this is a problem?

Mine do the same thing. No idea if this is normal or if there is a problem.

To me I'd describe the sound as the door hitting a detent at the end of its travel. Doesn't bother me a bit.

In my case my brand New 02EXL-NAVI does this on one side only... Which indicates a problem. WHy would it not on both sides?

The Dealer said I should have it looked at. I'll probably will. I'm just in no rush. Whe I do, I'll let you all know of the outcome.

Same here. I too think it's a detent. Not a problem for me.

Hmmm...maybe EXL Strugller's van DOES have a problem. Make sure you tell the dealer that you want both doors to clunk!

Mine does this on the left side only. If it is a normal sound it would occur with both doors, right?

They only installed the clunk on the left side.

Is it a problem or is just a little bit noisy than usual ?

I looked at it more closely today and there are rubber bumpers, or stops, that the door runs into as it finishes opening. The stops look pretty sturdy; I just hope the motor is cutting out before it hits them to avoid straining it.
