Is it your door or door handle that sticks ?
My door handle seems to stick a little and then when you go to shut the door it takes a couple of trys to get it to shut all the way.
Do you have the same problem?

That sounds like the latch mechanism is out of adjustment with the bar (or vice versa).

the one that opens on the outside u gotta pull the handle hard to open and the one that opens from the side of the door handle moves easier but when you open it you have to jerk cause if pull it easy the door will kinda half latch and move a little then you have to push it to latch it back then jerk it again harder and it'll pop open
