Why on Earth would ANY car company use plastic door handles that break continuously? We are extremely gentle on the handles since we discovered this scam that Toyota has. The handles still break. Since buying this van all of the door handles have been broken at least once and some have broken more than once. Again, we are very gentle with the door handles and they still break. This is such an issue with me that I will NOT buy another Toyota that has plastic parts that are pulled on. My driver's door handle just cost $125 (parts only) at the dealership, the only place locally to get the parts. I have no plans to ever buy a Toyota again because of this.
Drives nice enough---Other parts of the van are reliable---Jacking Up the van and tire changing is a good design. Easily removable seats turn it into a cargo van quickly.
Use aluminum for the parts that get tugged on repeatedly.
