sliding power door malfunction

Power door had been popping open frequently when we would try to get it to close with the button. But finally one day it didn't work and all these springs and cables were sticking out at the bottom of the door. You can still open and close it manually, and the power motor still tries to do something, but the cables and everything at the bottom of the door assembly are just all broken. Took it to Dodge and the part is over 400$, and they say half a day of labor. I haven't actually fixed it yet but they said around 1000$ to fix. I've had this van for three years now and my husband is trying to convince me to trade it for a Yukon instead.
