    hi guys my model s is out of warranty and my doors are popping open as I approach the car. They say if they need to replace door handles 700 each. Who thinks this is fair? I pay 100k for a car and 6 years later I have to pay for new door handles? Hopefully something they can fix? Please help anybody go through this before?

    Are you mechanically inclined? There are several YouTube vids that explain the operation and a possible fix.
    here's a good one:
