outside drivers side handle broken, dealer says this is a common problem and is not covered by GM. The handle is plastic, expected more from the Denali edition.

repaired Thru factory the first time. it broke again and again until finally I replaced it with a makeshift door opener. These are the inside door handles and they break very easily

My 2008 GMC Yukon Denali has had 4 outside door handles break so far. GMC and dealer will do nothing for me.
Had door handles replaced. This happened on several occasion with different door handles.
driver side handle cracked gm will not fix it
Outside door handles loose and falling off. They feel cheap and are only glued on?!? Problem started in rear door where child gets in and out, but now happened in 3 out of the 4 doors.
Passenger side outside door handle broke
My outer drivers door handle broke and I waited as long as possible to get this fixed. It costed about $120.00 and than about 1 wk later after I got it fixed the inside drivers door handle broke. This costed me $350.00!!! Absolutely ridiculous!!
