The TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) for the 2017 Niro's experiencing breaking door handles calls for ALL 3 door handles except the driver door, to be replaced. Ours were replaced in September when the vehicle was 2 months old. Recently, our front passenger door handle AND end cap broke off. Obviously the "fix" is NOT fixing the problem. I read somewhere that it was an over torquing issue on the assembly line............. well, after the "fix" if the handles are still breaking off, the problem must be something other than over torquing.

Sample size of one breaking after replacement? Is it possible they were being replaced without knowing the cause? Thus the dealer mechanic torqued to the original specification?

My rear passenger door handle fell right off, 6000 miles 2018 Niro. I looked at the part and it says 2017 on it, plus it is just a cheap plastic part. Who makes a door handle out of all plastic?
