I broke my original driver side interior door handle because I was pulling on it like an angry gorilla when the linkage started binding for some unknown reason. If you break your interior handle don't be scared to buy this product because of the other reviews. There is nothing wrong with this product. It's made just like the factory piece. And whatever you do don't buy one of the metal handles for the older model trucks/Broncos (unless you just like the chrome look). Because let's be honest if you were pulling hard enough to break the plastic handle, adding a metal handle is just gonna let you pull hard enough to break something more expensive/harder to replace. Take the time and remove your door panel and lube the cable going from the handle to the latch and lube the latch as well. If you're repeatedly breaking handles THERE'S STILL A PROBLEM. Take the time and address the whole system not just what you broke because, like me you thought "just pull harder."

Do not buy this product and expect it to last! I purchased this handle for the driver side door of my 94 Ford F150 truck. I drive the truck occasionally, maybe once every two weeks. The handle broke within the first two months. I have been rolling down my window and opening the door using the exterior handle. I have read other reviews that say to use the metal handles from the 80-86 Ford Trucks. I will try that and see what happens!

      This product is fine until it gets cold. In the cold weather it becomes brittle and breaks. I have purchased four in four years. It should be made out of metal.

                  The one I bought broke inside of two weeks. After reading the reviews I decided not to buy another one but made my own out of 3/16" steel. It looks good, feels good and is strong as hell.

                      I think these handles are maligned and its the mounting of the actual handle mechanism that's the problem. The inside door panel on these models is flimsy (and prone to fatigue breaking), making the mechanism and handle move around to where you can't tell which way to pull it to open the door. Check the F-150 forums. The handles don't move straight up or straight in, anyway, and move in and up at an angle, so we pull them hard the wrong way and break them off. The metal ones aren't much stronger. I lubed my cable with PB Blaster and the mechanism with white lithium, and its working fine now with the new handle, but I'm being careful to pull it the right way and not bind it up.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS HANDLE!! Go to [...] and buy the 80's model steal handle or go to the dealer. I give -5 stars it's total junk
