    Not a great product and even worse warranty.

    I replaced the original plastic handle with this metal one about 4 years ago. The OEM handle lasted almost 10 years. I figured if the original plastic one lasted that long then a metal one should last even longer. It felt more substantial and gave me a false sense of confidence. I found that after the first year I was starting to have trouble with the handle. It was still in tact but would no longer open the lift gate. I had to open the paneling up from the inside with the door shut, I could no longer open it, just to find that the metal handle had bent. I discovered that this part has a very limited warranty of 90 days thus it was no longer covered. I ended up re-bending the part to get it working properly. I also replaced the locking mechanism and cable for fear they were binding causing it to bend. This only lasted another few months and began to exhibit the same issue. I had to open the door up again just to find the handle had bent once more. This is an ongoing battle. I hope that subsequent models from Dorman have addressed this issue as I have been hesitant to spend another $60 just to throw it away when the same issue pops up again. I've not been impressed.

    Pros: constructed of metal versus the original was plastic.

    Cons: metal handle bends with time and must be re-bent or replaced - not a lifetime warranty.
