Wait, the metal rods broke or the plastic clips to the door handles?

Cheap plastic from Chrysler is again the likely cause. Take off your door panel and have a look. There will be a steel rod in there. See if it is catching anything.

3 of the 4 door handles on my 2006C have broken. They handles are plastic and they SUCK. My 2-1/2 year old daughter just broke the most recent victim. The part of the handle that is fixed to the door (not the latch part that goes through the door) is what breaks, so the handle flops around when you open it now. I really like the car, but the cheap-o trim really ticks me off. Really Chrysler? A door handle held to the car by a thin, cheap piece of plastic? Really? A 2-1/2 year old girl can break it?

I found some places on the internet that sell replacement handles relatively inexpensive - around $40. All you have to do is remove the inside door panel and unscrew 2 screws. A weekend mechanic can get it done in under 1 hour. Not the biggest deal, but extremely frustrating to have to keep replacing door handles. At least I can say this: I have 114,000 miles on it, and I have never replaced the original brakes (I do live in CA) and the motor still seems plenty strong, so if I have to replace a $40 door handle every now and then, I guess that's the price to pay for a good motor.
