Are there supposed to be door catches to keep the doors from swinging out all the way when opened? When I open the door and ease it open there doesn't seem to be any "stopping points" until it maxes out. It's very annoying when in tight spaces. Especially with new passengers.

Door ding risk is VERY high

I will look here shortly. Might even take a video of it for reference.

I've never been in a vehicle where the doors opened like this. Typically there are a couple of open "settling points" where the door will stop itself at different points. Not on mine lol. It's all out!

My '10 KC has detents on all 4 doors, but they are very weak. They won't keep the door in place on a hill or in wind.

Are the check straps removed?

It doesn't have check straps. Looks to be a bar that connects inside the door frame with a bar that runs inside of the door itself.

Yes, it's called a "door check." It's better than nothing, but only by a little bit.
