    I have the same problem with my driver-side door handle being broke, but there was no way I was going to pay that much money to get it fixed. So I did some research online and found a web site www.denlorstools.com where I can order replacement door handles. There's a video that shows how to replace the handles in DIY fashion. No reason to pay a dealer $1000 just to replace some door handles!

  • Same problem here. Why was there not a recall on this? Anything to get more money out of the consumer. Never again will I purchase a vehicle from Chrysler.

    The plastic surround around the door handle became fractured and slowly piece by piece began to break off and fall into the inner door. As of now have not had it fixed viewing the costs some of you have cited.

    both door panels are broken...$550 each to replace. Think I will try to do some fiberglass work on them first and see how that works.

    Many reports say that the plastic is breaking and cracking at the door handles of the Jeep Commanders. I have had mine replaced at the cost of $1200 for two of the them. The cause is the spring that activates the door latch when you pull on the handle. If you pull the handle and let it slap back into position, there is a part of the actual handle that will hit the plastic. The spring attached to the handle has a lot of strength and it will over time crack and than cause to break out the plastic. If you have children riding in rear seats, it will happen sooner rather than later. If you hold onto the handle after activation and let it go back into position without force, the door panels will not break due to this force of the handle hitting the plastic.
