Sentra S 1.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,000 miles

On a cold January morning here in Montana it was about 10 degrees out, I went outside to start this vehicle before work. I got to the unlock with key and pull part, and the handle literally broke off into my hand. This being the only keyed door on the car to be able to get in(Yes, this car has ONE access portal), it being the middle of January in Montana, and the mountains of snow on the ground/car presented a major problem and headache to then find a way to get at what remained of the handle to pull out to then be able unlock other doors for access. For about a week I left the back passenger side door unlocked until a repair could take place, which came in at just under $450.00. Luckily, the part didn't need painted(Wouldn't of paid the extra anyway) and it turned out to be silver, happily matching the rest of the car.
