Spooky fuel door

Hi everyone. I like this forum and like my 2018 Pacifica Hybrid Limited. Unfortunately it's been in the shop several weeks for stalling on the road and has had the PIM replaced which didn't cure the problem and then the transmission replaced which seems to have cured the stalling so far.
There is a smaller problem that I was wondering if anyone else has encountered. When I fill up the gas, shut the fuel door, climb in and start the car, the fuel door pops open again! After shutting it again the fuel door remains closed. Anyone else had this problem? Thanks.

I guess I have to answer, yes. I've never seen it pop back open but I have noticed at some point after fueling (same day or later) that the door is not latched shut. I'm sure I closed it completely but can't be sure. The occurrence is so infrequent I have not thought of it as a problem yet. The tank is still sealed with the flapper in the filler neck even if the door is ajar.

I also have a hybrid and had something similar happen a few times since daylight savings time (whenever that was, and that's the only way I can remember timeframe). After being parked, I'd turn the car on and notice the fuel door warning was on. This happened 3 different times and once when driving. As I was to go to dealership (because the check engine light had came on as well), both issues have disappeared. On top of that, our passenger sliding door button - from the outside- works 9 out of 10 times ( this also improved after daylight savings time...Software upgrade glitch? don't know) Waiting to take car in when the part for the steering glitch recall is available.
