okay, so the door panel didn't explode.....but, last night my girl was getting into my z and when she went to close the door the aluminum passenger hand grip flew off and the window and lock surround flew right with it, and i was just sitting their staring into my door panel in shock. Now either my girl has super-human strength, or nissan needs to step their quality control up a notch. I think it's the latter......my girl is a slim 115 lbs for cryin' out loud!!! :doh:

We can't be sure it wasn't your GF, so we are requesting pics of her to make sure it's Nissan's fault. :wink:














:jk: They definitely need to use better glue or screws or clamps...

Doug my husband actually ripped that handle right off at a meet once....he wanted to run away! :ahhh: :hide2: LOL But the dealership covered it under warranty, but the surronding panel to the locks didn't come off :OMG: Get it to the dealership. My door had not been cracked open ever before and it came right off in his hand....

Hey this just happened to me...well almost. I was getting in the passenger side to let JC take shezhot around the block and when I grabbed the door the handle, at the top, popped out!! But before I could show JC as I shut the door it popped back into place and I couldn't replicate it or even jiggle it loose!! WHat gives??? Hope it doesn't pop out anytime soon.
