I love My car.......but the drivers door inside latch has broken twice this time the dealer tells me they are on factory backorder and could be 6 months before Iwill get one. it looks kinda silly to pull up to a parking spot and have to rool the window down (on a 42,000 dollar car) and open the door from the outside.
sorry for the wineing but I was hoping for some help on who I can go to beond the dealer.

I would not drive it in that condition and see if I could get a rental. It's a brand new vehicle. They sould be able to accomodate you.

When I got my SSR out of "hock" last Friday (took 7 days to get a radiator fan and 2 hours to install it) after having driven a rental for 8 days, my service rep asked me if I wanted to keep the rental and wait for the inside driver's door handle. It has been back-ordered for 5 weeks at that point and nothing on the horizon looked promising so I said no, I'd just have to get by I guess.

Call me fickle, but I "missed" driving my truck and was growing weary of that milquetoast 4 door Malibu rental. :lol

I'm with the OP, I can't understand how a huge corporation like GMC can have so much trouble and take so much time getting the parts to fix a simple door handle on such an expensive vehicle ? ? ? :mad

The Dealership here in Blue Springs, Mo. told me that I would have to wait until the passenger side doorhandle brakes before they would replace it! I have no idea how long it will be before my driverside panel comes in! I`ll keep everyone informed when it does get fixed! Walter.
