Hey guys, I posted a video on youTube detailing my issues with the door panels! Comment on it and let's get this recall/class action suit started! Or just post your own video! We need to get Jeep's attention and let them know that we're serious!
Here's a link to my video: Jeep Door Panel Issue

#40 of 138 2005 CHEAP PLASTIC DOORS
Jun 07, 2010 (11:59 pm)
I posted once before - both rear door handles have fallen off. Jeep quoted me $3,000 for parts for 4 door panels, not including labor. I've been using old dog collars on the rear doors as a temporary method of opening the doors. the dog collars have buckle holes in them which I used to push the collar/straps onto the wire hook inside the gaping holes. then I secured them in place with plastic ties. This way, a rear seat passenger can open the door by pulling the strap forward. crude, embarrassing, frustrating, etc., waiting for some resolution to the problem by Chrysler.

Well from what I hear, it's not that hard to start a class action suit. If we can get some more responses, we can split the costs between us and hopefully initially pay much less than what Jeep is quoting us. If anyone has pics of the damage to their vehicle or wants to post to youTube like I did, it can only help our situation!

Wow, I have the same issue but much much worse. My driverside front door is cracked and has a whole in it and my passenger front and rear are completely missing the shell so the handles just hang there, the only door that is completely in tact is my driverside rear and that cause im 6' 8" so no one sits behind me. This is B.S. and the dealer quoted me 750 a door WTF.... I hope there will be a solution soon, By the way its a 4.7 05 jeep grand cherokee limited in texas

Are pieces of pooh! My driver handle is ready to fall off. What do I do then? Local dealership wants over $700 to fix one door panel! I can't believe Chrysler is acting as if they're ignorant of this little issue! I'm calling tomorrow..I can't believe how many posts are on thsi site about this issue. People should post this on their fb pages also!
