2013 GMC Yukon 50,000 mi,
Front passenger side outside door handle broke. This happened and this door gets very little use. There are typically only three people in this vehicle, myself and my two kids that sit in the back. Bodyshop said that this is a very common break with GMC and it cost nearly $200 to repair. The bodyshop said that GMC says kids are rough on it which is not true and besides that this is a family vehicle. A door handle should not break on a vehicle with 50,000 miles period.
