I think the problem here is the weight of the doors, and they begin to sag over time, requiring excessive opening closing force. My first inside door handle broke around 100,000 miles, bought a brand new one from the dealer and it lasted maybe 6 months. Like I said, my doors need to have the hinge pin bushings replaced to correctly align my door, hopefully after that it will stop eating up the handles! -
