PT Cruiser 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 60,000 miles
Inside door handle on PT CRUISER has split, causing an extremely sharp sliver to cut my finger. Mr. Akkerman, asst. Service manager at the Chrysler service center in hemet agrees that this is probably a defective part but that Chrysler should not be responsible for replacing it. I wonder if there have been any other complaints or injuries from this handle or if mine is an isolated incident.
