    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!

    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.

    I have an 06 Jeep Commander 5.7 Hemi with chrome handles. The handles began breaking apart shortly after 60,000 miles. I got replacement handles on ebay for about $45 each. 90,000 miles later they are still looking like new, and did not have to pay $600+ for each door panel. It is very easy to install, just a little hassle to take the panel out, but well worth it. Just search in ebay for "2006 jeep commander door handle". Make sure you select the correct one for each door. (eg. FR, FL, RR, RL).

    Both handled on the inside of my 06' jeep commander are broke. We really have to work the handle and jiggle it for it to open.
