The driver side door on my smart for lack of a better term rebounds just enough to make the alarm beep. By this I mean the door when shut
closes but before the lock can engage, it bounces out just enough to catch (door will stay closed but not latch completely). Solutions?

Sounds like the door has a bit of freeplay (or not enough). I recommend adjusting the door latch on the Tridion Cell until the door operates properly. :)

Our cars are fairly airtight.
I usually (firmly) "Push" the door closed, rather than letting it slam on its own?

Try closing it your usual way with the window cracked open?
IF it still rebounds, then it's an alignment issue, if not then I would say Operator Error?

You may be right. Operator error. A re...ah slam does the trick. All I have to do now is close cardoors and back window like my wife does. She can cause a nosebleed if you are sitting in the car. :)
