Im not sure if the 07 door panels are the same as my 03 but on the bottom left of the door panel there is like a vent there that allows pressure within the cab out when you shut a door.

Thats true, but I do know that when my buddy (2003 ranger) has his ac on with the windows up and you open/close the door you can feel the pressure inside the cab....

Probably. I was thinking new seals too. Rangers do seal up tight. I have crossed water that was deep enough to cover my bumper and have never had any leak in. Can't say the same for the airbox though.

you better hope your door didn't hear that. It might decide to open sometime when your going around a sharp curve. lol

I hafta slam my drivers door because of a msitake i made on the trails one day, i was towing a tree out of my way in reverse. of course ,my stupid *** not paying attentio,n my door caught on a tree on the trailside and bent it backwards about 8 inches past where full open normally is. bent the hinges out a little bit, so whenever i close my door to just before it latches and let go of it, it sticks out about 3 inches from where it used too. so now i HAVE to slam my door to get it closed, so here is a little advice always close your doors when you are in reverse LOL

They aren't going to stop making buicks, they sell pretty well. Olsmobile on the other hand had bad designs and were labeled as an old mans car. Since buick already had that market sewed up, there was no reason to keep them around. I think its ashame though with it being the oldest name plate in the auto industry that GM droped it, oh well...
