Does anyone kno where I can get some more durable door handles, Exterior & Interior, I have multiple broken ones inside and out, many other corolla owners I kno have this same problem, and now my passenger door wont open cause they are both broken and my wife doesn't appreciate having to "Duke It" in and out of the window lol

I've never heard of any material other than plastic used for the door handles inside or out. I think I've seen chrome outside handles but that's probably plastic chrome anyways. My inside handles have cracked also so I know where you're coming from

I have zip ties functioning as my drivers door handle right now. Very brittle plastic for door handles. The car is pretty much a rat rod anyway, so the ties fit right in.

Very common quality issue on the 7th Gen Corolla. Every Corolla in the junkyard has many many broken door handles. Just find some good used ones from a junk yard is your best bet.
