Hey guys. I assume this is a feature and not a defect. Looks like the door drain? I have that opening in the corners on both doors so I assume it’s meant to be there haha. Just making sure!

It is a cover, over a hole, for access to a bolt on the interior of the door. Your hatch (top) has many.

I think he's talking about the very bottom corner ... where there is an opening and I'd say yes, that's intentional

Yes! Thanks. I took a picture and was doing this on my phone, sorry I didn’t specify.

Cool, I figured it was fine but no other car I have had looked like this.

Thanks all!

Wait until you open the hood.... There's lots more of those. Make it look like the hood wasn't assembled correctly.
