Excellent quality, better than OEM
The part arrived on time and was the correct part. The original is plastuc, which is why I had to replace. New part is metal, amd less than a dealership charges for OEM plastic handle.
Looks like 1AAuto has some good prices overall, amd so far, quality is better than OEM

Tailgate lift handle fit perfectly
I purchased a tailgate lift handle for my 03 Siemna that was of obvious quality and it fit perfectly. Do the research and don’t select the lower priced plastic version from
Other online suppliers.

Solid replacement
Highly recommend the metal replacement piece as opposed to the plastic one. The gate handle here is a little stiffer than the stock piece, but that isn't a problem. It fit perfectly. Installation was simple, I just had some complications removing rusted out licence-plate screws but other than that it was not difficult.

High quality part
I’ve had other versions of this part break during the winter. Twice. This part is a much higher quality metal-body construction than the others I’ve seen online. And the 1A price was less to boot. This part is highly recommended.

Much better than OEM
This lift gate handle solves a very simple issue. Plastic does not hold up over time. The repair was simple DIY with the help of YouTube.

Worked like a charm
Original handle broke and was in need of replacement. Like an idiot I went to amazon and got that was defective (didn't engage cable enough to trigger lock mechanism). Came to 1A auto and ordered a handle which ended up working perfectly.

Is the hook that engages the mechanism metal too?

BEST ANSWER: Everything was metal in this replacement part. Not plastic like the original. It is a little stiffer, takes a little more force to pull, but not a problem.
