    Spray silicone works great.

    Wipe your door seals down with a towel to remove any crud and then simply spray the seal (if you go with spray vs. grease) all around the door frame. I do it to all our cars probably twice every winter and have never had a problem.

    man.....nothing will drive you up the wall more than having a door frozen shut. I remember when I first moved up north I had a 75 cutlass and that damn thing froze up constantly. Like everyone else has said...silicone.

    i broke the handle of the new mini van about a week ago i flew back and landed on my ass hard. i guess that was that karma thing you were talking about.
    i can't find a used handle so i have to buy the whole thing from the dealer. 89.00 plus tax then i have to get it painted white for about 60 more. ouch.
    needless to say if it is stuck at all i lift the kids to the back seats.
