    Is it common on the 2017's for the center console door to be very "light" when opening? Like it takes nothing to open and close, so much so that slowing down with the center console door open will cause it to practically slam shut.

    If so, has anyone successfully "tightened it up"?

    My 14' is the same way. I don't mind it though. I haven't looked at the hinge, but would imagine it is some type of spring assist.
