2007 Dodge Nitro driver interior door handle broke when just trying to get out. Are their reported problems with these door handles as they are different from the standard and seem to be more prone to breakage through normal use?

The dealership wanted too much to replace it so I bought Mighty Putty and fixed it myself, it has been fine for 5 months now. I just read that the dealership is one of the ones they are closing. Good they charge too much, they hit me up for $800 on my 35000 service

Both inside back door handles broke in my 2007 Dodge Nitro. Where would I look for replacements?

A Dodge dealership service dept will hook you up. If there's not one near you, find one on the internet and call them. Might find 'em used at a salvage yard but for an '07, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Broker Dodge Nitro Door Handle

I had my hadle break the other day. I went to the dealership and they wanted $170.00 to replace. The door handle was $60 by it self (for a piece of plastic)!! I read a solution on here that used epoxy putty (JB Weld for Plastic) find it at your hardware store and it worked. Pushing the latch out to touch the handle, I used the epoxy putty on the break and taped the handle to the door to apply pressure and now it's strong as steel. I spent $5.50 for the epoxy putty and saved over $160. Let another handle break, I'm ready!!!!
