The vert top latch handle broke in half on my wife when she attemped to close the latch.

The handle looks to me like an aluminum alloy with a plastic coating. My neighbor tells me it is carbon fiber with a plastic coating, whatever it is it certainly is light.

Not a big deal, I'm just curious if anyone else has had a similiar failure.

This is the first failure of this type I've heard of. Sounds to me like on of those freak things. Good luck on the repair.:thumbsup:

Thanks, looks like an easy repair (should be warrantee work) with just 1 screw/nut to change.

I just hope it’s not an ’08 material change that leads to future repeats.
