Has anyone else reported problems with the outside door handles breaking? I just paid more than $300 to have 2 passenger side door handles repaired because the screws broke!

    Yes. Mine have pulled out of socket also and it is the passenger door (twice). Luckly still under warranty.

    I am currently having a problem with my outside backseat driver door handle on my 2008 denali. I thought it was my 7 year old and they way he was pulling on it to get in the car. The handle actually separates from the vehicle when you open the door! I called the dealership and they said that they have seen it happen quite often. I got a price quote and it is going to cost me $65 for the door handle, and of course $100 for labor b/c my warranty is over by milage! I feel that if it is happening this often then there should be a recall!

    Yes. I just bought a 2008 this weekend. When we were home and taking a detailed look at the car we noticed that two doors had the broken handles where the screw pulled out. It should be a recall and I hope this is not the first of many issues.

    Yes, driver side back passenger door. After it broke and had repaired under warranty, realized my 4 year old hangs from it like a monkey before climbing in. Still, obvioulsy a problem to break so easily from a 35# kid.
