Drives great, when the door shuts!

2012 Volkswagen Jetta S Sport

I love driving the Jetta. Currently having difficulty where the drivers door is not closing properly at different times. The door will shut but the sensor will continue to beep at times the door will not shut and I have to manually lock the car. Other than this issue I have not had any other issues with the vehicle it is a comfortable ride that feels classy but accessible.
