Inside door handle broke. The handle itself due to metal fatigue. 1st time on drivers side I paid mech to fix, by replacing whole handle assembly. 2nd time I fixed with golf tee and paintbrush handle, cost difference was 150$ I also fixed passenger side interior handle the same way. My 10 year old son gets a kick out of this.

Driver side interior handle breaks inside door. Metal there is too thin and replacements just break again.

First the inside drivers door handle just broke off in my hand @ 150000 miles. Then later both drivers and passenger side door handles have broken @ 400000 miles. Fixing was not easy but was accomplished.Purchased replacement at Autozone.
