    The button (or mini handle thingy) used to open the left falcon door popped out a bit and now the door can't be opened from the inside although it can still be closed. Has anybody else had this? Given the many times the handle is pulled on by kids I can imagine that they can break pretty quickly. The car is two years old.

    You can bring it to the Tesla SC. These buttons have the newer version, which is click button - not pull anymore.

    Thanks. I figured it couldn't just be me having this issue.

    Yup! Mine was broken because my mom lifted the button really hard. When you bring your car to the SC, tell them that the other button sometimes didn't work too. That is why you had to pull/push it so hard to get it worked. Make sure they will replace both :p
