Those side doors are easily "sprung" (opened too far) just because of their design. The hinges stop them from opening all the way and seldom have some sort of "check strap" to limit travel so they get swung open and wham, the door is stopped by the hinge and the hinge gets bent a little. Do that 1151 times and the door is out of alignment.
