What’s the average car door handle replacement cost?

So, here’s the thing. I got a great deal on a used car my neighbor was selling, but now I realize the passenger’s side door handle needs to be replaced. It kind of annoys me that he didn’t say anything about it. What’s the average car door handle replacement cost?

Uh-oh, buying a car from a neighbor can be tricky. In any case, the average car door handle replacement cost is $70-$300 for an interior handle and anywhere from $100 to over $500 for an exterior handle.
Why such a range in terms of the price? For one, the cost of a new door handle varies, from expensive ones on luxury cars to standard ones found on economy vehicles. Also, exterior handles—which are more durable because they are on the outside and subject to extreme weather conditions—are more expensive than interior ones.
In terms of telling your neighbor about the handle—that decision is yours! Sometimes, it’s better to keep quiet about the repair and remain cordial. After all, you did get a good deal!
Finding out a good deal on a used car isn’t quite the deal you were expecting can be disappointing. However, if you’ve saved money, don’t sweat small repairs. There are other ways to save money—like lowering the cost of your car insurance.
