I have a 2004 Chrysler sebring. The problem is that it has door handles that have a metal covering on them. I have replaced them several times. The metal covering on the handles start to peel off and it cuts your hands if not careful. My granddaughter required stitches from opening the back door. I have also had serious cuts. After talking to other sebring owners I have found that they have the same problems with the door handles and being cut. I would like to she this changed to different handles, however I am only able to get the same type of handle for my car.
