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.

A very bad design and very costly also Battery was almost dead this morning checked battery postive connection was good negative connection was a acid build up at the bottom side of connector to the post .

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.
