My 6 year old son hit the button to open the automatic door the same time I hit the it causing the door to close on his head. It closed on his head with tremendous force and pressure before releasing leaving him with a large bump on the side of his head and sore. It took a few seconds to release. It should have never closed with that much pressure as it could have broken a bone and potentially worse. The door should have stopped and released as soon as it touched my son. The safety mechanism of this door is not safe and can cause serious harm. The door needs to close slower and lighter. As soon as anything is felt in the way it should release immediately and not continue to try to close.

Power sliding door does not stop closing when an object is encountered. My wife was hurt but not seriously injured when she was caught in the door while it was closing. We're concerned that if a child was caught they would be much more seriously injured. Chrysler says there is no away to adjust the sensitivity so that the door stops exerting force sooner.

My almost 2 year old got his hand fully caught in the sliding door, even though it is supposed to have a safety feature which would prevent it. The door was closing, closed and fully engaged the locks on his hand. His hand was lodge far enough into the door that you couldn't slide the hand out, you had to physically open the door to get his hand out, he couldn't just slide it out. At the time he had indents on his fingers where the door pushed in them. Now, a few hours later, he has bruising and slight swelling to his fingers and one of the fingers has a slight cut on it. These doors are supposed to have a sensor in it to prevent the doors from closing on someone, it obviously failed in this case.
