Tailgate Handle
I had to replace the tailgate handle on my pickup. It broke while I was on a trip. I was able to order online while on my trip and the handle arrive the day after I returned. It was an exact fit and easy install. Great service from 1A Auto.

2005 chevy colorado tailgate latch
The part arrived on time and as described at a fraction of the cost of a factory model. Their how to videos are a great time saver as well and transferring the lock mechanism only took a few seconds.

Thanks 1A for saving me time and money!

Chevy tail gate handle
This latch is the same as the factory part. It was easy to replace after watching the video, and was at my door in just a couple of days. Also the price was almost as low as the local salvage yard. What else would you want?

I would have been alright with the quality But ,
one end of the handle return spring was not shaped properly, thus it cannot help pull handle back into position. QC problem?

Excellent replacement
This handle is an excellent replacement for a broken oem part. It cost 1/5 that of a dealer replacement part. Quality and fit are great. The on-line "how to" installation video was very helpful and work was done in less than 10 minutes. Works great!

Tail gate handle for Colorado
Quick delivery and good fit. This is about the fourth handle I have had to change as they are made out of plastic and keep breaking in the same place. I have had good service with 1aauto and will use them for other parts for my Colorado.

Pefect Fit - Installation video made install easy!
The part was a perfect fit for my vehicle. I watched the installation video once before ordering the part to make sure it was within my capability and I had the correct tools. Reviewed video once again before installing which made the installation quick and easy.

Does this part include lock & keys?
Rick J on Nov 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No lock or key. You need to use the old cylinder (and key if you have it). You can order either with or without the key/lock provision. The how-to video makes it super easy for anyone to install.
Is this an aftermarket handle or OEM?
