problem #1

2002 Honda Civic ex 4 door the indoor door handles are peeling very sharp metal that cuts your hand when you try to open the door. I have cut my hand several times. Once almost needing stitches. Honda informed me that there were recalls for other models for this problem, but not this year/make/model. This is surely a safety defect, though not life threatening.
