3 out of four outside plastic door handles have been pulled out of mounting cutouts in the doors.The plastic h,,andles are not broken per se but the steel tabs used to fasten the different handle to the door are rusted away. If I purchased new handles;there would be no way to hold them in their respective door cut outs.presently 3 out side handle assemblies are hanging outside the doors.Solution? A new door or welding A tap plate over the corroded area so as to provide Asolid stable attachment point. Having worked for GM SOME 15 years,this indifferent attitude toward such a widespread serious problem seems uncharacteristic and unconscionable. I purchased the car used,and on my first trip through the carwash at THE GM dealer the door handles fell off. In addition the rear hatch back must be propped open with A 4x4 ; and we wont even touch on rear brake debacle
Inside door handle broke off -too much exertion. Purchased a new handle assembly on the internet, took off the inside door panel and after some diagnosis removed the old assembly and broken handle,installed the new one in the raverse sequence. There is some inspection and analysis required, but it is not impossible.
