Question about Chevrolet HHR

Inside door handle on my 2006 hhr broke.

I was just getting out of the car and the handle broke and the want over 300 for the part and over 100 to install it. I call GM service to let them know my thoughts. The designer or engineer was an idot.

    Though the people you blame are partly at fault, I've seen many good designs fall flat because the accounting department decides that the specified materials are too expensive, and changes specifications to something that will not do the job!!!

My 2006 HHR has check engine light constantly on and now has liquid dripping from the right underside of the dashboard. Is this related or seperate issues? Also, the inside door handle just broke off in...

does the liquid have color if perfectly clear its condensate from AC evaporator, the drain may be blocked and need clearing. A red/orange color indicates the heater core or lines to it are leaking Dex-cool. As for the CEL have a auto parts store, O'reilys, AutoZone scan for codes and get back to me. The door handle will take some surgery especially on getting the interior panel off, hidden screws, wire connectors. Find a reference sheet for that

My passenger side door stopped opening on me last night... the door locks and unlocks but will not open from inside or outside.

you have to open the door panel from the inside and see if the rivets broke off or if the rods going to the opening mechanisim fell or broke off.
