KIA SPECTRA DOOR PROBLEM

2004 Kia Spectra • 65,000 miles

I have a 2004 kia spectra - the previous owner used to lock her keys out of her car. Often. Apparently a few of the locksmiths she hired to open the car up for her used the inflatable bag method to create a gap between the car door and the body of the car. The problem I'm having is that I can hear a very loud "woosh" sound when I'm at freeway speeds. If I pull hard on the door like I'm trying to close it, the noise goes away. Is the door just totally bent? Is this something the locksmiths did? It doesn't leak water when it rains, it's just very noisy. Thanks!

There is a possibility the door frame has been jacked out of alignment. Check the door striker. Some adjustment might work.
