Mercedes-Benz C240 Problem
Average Mileage: 80,734 mi (21,000 mi - 127,000 mi)

The interior front door pulls broke loose from one end of the handle.
I used epoxy glue to re-attach the pulls.
It worked well. It was much cheaper than replacing the pull.

Handles look like garbage...

DIY repair - both front grab handles broke on the bottom mounting point and bought new one's from dealership. New parts seem to be updated with longer mounting points. To early to tell if it will delaminate again.

Both driver door and front passenger door handles broke at about 48k. Center console cover and handles lose color when cleaned. Horrible interior trim quality in general. Will never purchase another MB - quality is awful and maintenance cost is worse. Prvious two Infinitis were far superior.
