Re: Broken door handles

I think your "bad batch" theory may be what is happening because I don't see any reports in the UK about this problem. That would be good news if this is an easy fix at the plant.

Re: Broken door handles

I am referring to the exterior door handles when you try to open the rear door from the outside.
Did you click on the original link I posted?

Re: Broken door handles

This is happening in the US with mainly the rear passenger doors. Reports say they have put no unusual pressure grabbing the door handles. They should be durable enough to withstand normal use on a new car. The handle is breaking off, not coming loose. The working parts that break are plastic.

Re: How is the car on steep grades?

Hi h2onorth,
My RAV4 is not all wheel drive, but living in Phoenix , I haven't experienced icy road conditions with it. I really was not that interested in the hybrid/electric aspect of the Niro, but I love it's size and layout a lot.

Re: There seems to be a problem with US Niros

That would be scary Steve. I guess these cars don't have hill hold?

Are any of you in the UK having this problem as in the US?
