The term “door handle” is a turn of phrase, we all know it’s a door release lever, let’s not get stuck on Semantics.
The issue is Alfa Romeo market themselves as a premium brand and as such they need to look the manufacturing/design process of this part or just suck it up and replace FOC. This part is the same one in current model as those in the origina, that’s 8 years on and still fitting a defective partl. There is also a safety issue here.
On the earlier Giulietta at least there is nothing premium about the interior. A nice DNA switch and fancy blue and me cannot disguise a myriad of cheap looking bits of plastic which don't fit together very well, and often break.
Sorry fellow G owners but the interior quality is very lacking even compared to the 156/147 let alone the 159.
