Interior door handle broke off right in my hand. Never had this happen before. It is part of the door trim, and the part cost $395.00!! GM needs to replace this under warranty!!
My grandson was trying to open the driver side door when the handle made a popping sound and came out farther than normal. The door did not open. I exited on the passenger side, went to the driver side and had to open the door for him. Not sure what happen inside of door. The warranty has expired for this truck.
the door handles break on the inside and they pull off on the outside what if somebody is an emergency and needs to get out of the damn vehicle? federal government should make every carmaker go back to steel door handles just because of this problem
The handle came off with ease in my hand. Cheaply made cast aluminum it looks like. $398 bucks for the part which someone else mentioned its part of the door trim assembly. Thank God still under warranty or I'd be pi$$ed! Still not happy about it,

Door handle replaced by shop (Whole Door Panel Done at time for $500) now two months later same exact problem. Why the hell is the only fix the whole panel!? Why make such a cheap part chevy?
While attempting to close the driver-side door, the handle broke completely loose on one side. Now, I am careful to pull on it to close the door because I don't know how much longer it can last like this. In order to fix it, I suppose I would need a whole new interior door panel which are not cheap. I've checked.
