Exhibit A : center console handle

see those 4 square tabs? Those are what hold the release handle for the center console. The metal tongue presses it down, you lift up and the arm rest releases. 4 tiny tabs of plastic. Why would you have a piece under pressure that has to flex to function be secured by 4 2mm thick tabs of plastic?!

Mine shesrwd off years ago. I repaired it by gluing strips of zip tie to act as a hinge. Originally I epoxy'ed the handle back on but it didn't flex and just broke off. Hense the zip ties. Well its ugly. So I ordered a replacement off eBay.

It is such an awful design that my replacement came with the handle already broken off!

*I did contact the seller and they said to keep this one and they're mailing me a replacement asap, free of charge.
