i have had to replace each door handle 3 or more times, i have now resorted to getting them off salvage vehicles. two are currently broken now, because its appox $150 to replace just one at a dealership, wish there was a long term solution. cadillac classifies this as normal wear and tear but that is equal to about 14 or more door handles now in 8 years, sounds like a bigger problem at hand to me. -
