|My poor door looks so sad...|
Of course the dealership I take my car (2010 Hyundai Sonata) to is closed on Sundays so first thing Monday morning I drive down there and see what they can do for me. After waiting about 10 minutes, they tell me they can fix it, obviously, but it will be about 2 days. Apparently it takes forever (i.e. 1-2 days) to paint a door handle. Once that is done, I bring my car back in and they re-attach it to the door. So right now, they're painting it and will let me know when they're done.

|So close to 60K...|
And that's where we're at now. I have to open my car door through the front passenger side for the next 48 hours and then wait and see if Hyundai will refund us our money. I'm happy they got back to me quickly and will think about reimbursing us but it is still silly. I can either get mad or laugh and I'm choosing to laugh, especially as I try to reach across my car to open the heavy door and get it to stay open when it wants to close.
At least that's what I'll remind myself of :)
Oh, and in case you were wondering, yes we still went to the gym. We're dedicated like that.
So, has this ever happened to you? Any other funny car malfunction?
For the record, this is the first time since I got the car in 2010 that I've had an issue. I am otherwise very happy with my carand recommend their vehicles. This is not a paid advertisement in any form, just wanted to put that out there :)
