I repaired the door handle myself with a thin strip of flexible metal, two tiny screws in pre-drilled holes. Then I reinforced it all with a glue gun (epoxy would work too). Total cost..about 20 cents. Time to repair, less than an hour.
Note: Use care removing the switches in the door panel. They do all pop out but some not so easily. Now I'll just wait for the others to break.

DEALER SAYS DRAIN HOSE FOR DRIVERS SIDE SUNROOF NEEDS TO BE REPLACED HAS TO ORDER IT. HAD CAR FOR 3 DAYS TO DETERMINE THIS, MECHANIC DROPPED HEAD LINER DOWN AND POUR WATER DOWN DRAIN LINE AND NOTICED WATER RUNNING DOWN OUTSIDE OF DRAIN HOSE. PUT CAR BACK TOGETHER AND I HAD TO WAIT 7 DAYS FOR HOSE ASSEM. TO ARRIVE. BEFORE TAKING CAR BACK I TOOK A FLASHLIGHT AND LOOKED DOWN DRAIN LINE FROM SUNROOF. COULD SEE HOSE WAS NOT CONNECTED WHICH THEY FINALLY CONNECTED. SO CAR WAS IN THEIR POSSESSION ON AND OFF FOR TEN DAYS. DON`T BELIEVE DEALER WOULD EVER HAVE FOUND LEAK OR DID NOT APPEAR TO CARE. WHOLE MESS JUST NOTHING BUT AGGRAVATION. SPENT ALOT OF MY OWN TIME IN WATER USE, TO LOCATE LEAK, ELECTRIC FOR HAIR DRYER TO DRY UP FLOOR EVERY TIME A HEAVY RAIN OCCURRED. ALL THIS BECAUSE OF HOSE NOT CONNECTED PROPERLY TO DRAIN. MECHANIC WITH DIRTY HANDS LEFT GREASE MARKS ALL OVER HEAD LINER WHICH AFTER ME COMPLAINING DID DETAIL WHOLE CAR. LAST HEAVY RAIN NO LEAKS. HAVE FINGERS CROSSED. YES SOME CARS WILL HAVE SOME PROBLEMS BUT WHAT COUNTS IS DEALER STANDING BEHIND WARRANTY AND BENDING OVER BACKWARDS TO SATISFY CUSTOMERS!!!!!!!!!!!! AND COMPANY, GM HAS TO BACK THEIR DEALERS. THINGS START AT THE TOP AND TRICKLE DOWN THE CHAIN.

I agree about starting class action lawsuits, I returned to service department for my 2008 HHR 6 times, there of those for water leaks driver side car soaked from to back. First time 7 days after purchase July 1, 2008 electrical problem, dealership never realize car had been leaking. Recently return to service department something drained the batteries, they swore the light switch was left on, but I know it was left on auto, key stuck as well shocks me each time I get in and out. At time it appears to accelerate but they want address this issue. Service department has destroyed carpet on driver side, coming up from floor, wires exposed. This is only a few of my issues with this car.

#61 of 130 2007 HHR LT Remote Start Door control failure and Door Handle failure!
Jan 17, 2010 (11:54 am)
Okay, In all my life, I've NEVER had a door handle fail, e.g., breakoff inside the door. And from what I've read, Chevy wants you to by a complete assembly, did they get this from from how Neon's are built, buy a whole unit with only a tiny part broke?
First the remote start door remote system quits, replaced fob battery and worked for about a month, then nothing, once in awhile it sort of works. But having a door handle break like this is bad!
How many owners have the same problem? If you need to get out of the car, wind window down reach out or use the passenger door! This is a safety issue!
I looked online for some diagrams to see how to remove the panel inside to get to the mechanism, nothing readable! Anyone have something?
