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.

Perfect fit!
We ordered this item as a sturdy metal replacement for the weak broken plastic OEM lift gate handle. The construction is BETTER than the OEM original, the price was outstanding and the shipping fast. I recommend this part, and I trust and recommend 1A Auto. I will be buying from them again.

Nice Upgrade from the Factory Plastic Version
Somewhat of a pain to install, but definitely doable with the video. Saved me a ton of money versus having the dealership replace with the original plastic version which I had done twice previously. I will buy this metal version if it ever breaks again.

Great part. nice fit.
I am very happy with my order from A1 Auto. They had the option of an all metal part instead of the plastic one that you get from Toyota at three times the price. I highly recommend them.

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.
