Don't feel like you are alone. I get shocked too. I have just learned to close my door by pushing on the window instead of the metal door or trim. This use to happen to me on my company car also. It doesn't happen to everyone.
I know it's crazy but it has worked for me. I'm a bit of a neat freak so when I get in the car I take off my shoes. LOL! Now it is soo hard for me to drive with shoes! It feels weird. Anyways I don't get shocked any more. Now I know most people aren't going to take their shoes off every time they drive but I just thought I'd share my story.
Mitsubishi offers a Static touch pad as a accesory that you can buy at the dealers which is also on sale for cheap until January 31st! they used to come standard on MX-3's so you never got shocked. It doesn't happen to me so it must be karma! lol.
