Mercedes-Benz C230 Problem
Average Mileage: 72,373 mi (19,000 mi - 246,000 mi)
The passenger door handle is so broken/lose/weak/, I tried gluing it and it didn't work. Door handles are cheap and not sturdy at all.

Replaced both door grabs on the inside of the vehicle. The first was covered under the 50,000 warranty and second just cost me $237.00. Is this a recalled item by Mercedes?
Both inside handles came off - the top part. It seems to be a defect if this occured at the same time. It sucks that something so simple can cause so much incovenience. How can Mercedes Benz allow this?

Both Handles one side popped out first, later broke the entire handles. I purchase the parts from Benz dealer for $45 each, paid $150 for labor.
