Mine were replaced free of charge, I didn't end up seeking reimbursement for the body work as I also had a similar thing on the piano black b pillars on the windows as well, and those were also replaced (although I am under warranty so YMMV)

I took mine in for finish problems on my pillars - they took a bunch of photos, tried to question my tint, and then never got back to me. Now I suddenly have handle cracks on my 2020 with 7000 miles.

Any bulletin# on the pillars? That would help me.

The handles have a bulletin, the pillars don’t. That being said, my car has tint on the rear windows and they didn’t give me any issue at all. I’d find another dealership - that should be covered.

So with the bulletin if you bring it in they will repair it? Even out if warranty?

As of last week, both of my 2020 Macan S vehicles had their door handle cracks fixed. Actually, they replaced all 4 handles on each, of course. They didn't actually repair them. White and Dolomite. colors. It took way longer than it should have. The entire process. From taking pictures, sending them to my dealership, having them get approval from Porsche, ordering the handles, getting them in and painted, and setting up an appointment when they had a loaner for me, was months. Too many months. With numerous follow ups or it never would have happened. But it is now done. I think Porsche should have sent out a notice to the affected vehicles and replaced the door handles on their 10,000 service but that would be logical and costly. Don't give up. Get them replaced. Who knows what happens down the road otherwise.

It’s ridiculous that Porsche comes out with the third facelift but can’t even come out with a updated part that can solve the issue once and for all. I mean common guys, this door handle issue has been reported since 2015 and they still haven’t come out with a part to replace the defective part. I’m surprised nobody sued them yet.

Very valid point. They did fix both of my vehicles and gave me loaner cars each time. That said, it still was a pain to chase them each time to get it done, and then to bring car there and then pick up. Shouldn't be necessary years after the issue was discovered.

I mean they can charge you for keyless entry but if it’s defective it’s not porsches fault. Maybe defect-less handles are a separate option.

I had one handle ordered under warranty; it’s not even in yet and 2 more handles have cracked. The only one not cracked at this point is my driver’s door - go figure!

X your fingers, one to go. I'd like it if you would set a poll here where we could all gamble on when the #4 lets go.

I am going on my third time of having handles replaced because of cracks. If you read earlier posts in this thread, you will see that I had all 4 handles replaced. Since then I have had another handle that was already replaced, replaced again. This was the passenger rear handle. I just had that replaced two months ago and now I noticed that every handle with the exception of the one that was just replaced two months ago has cracked. I have notified the dealer last week, but haven't heard back from them. This will be my third visit for cracked door handles. When they replaced the four, I was told that had a newer revision with a new part number. Now all four of them got the same cracks. I think it is only a matter of time before the one that I had replaced two months ago fails.
I will let them know about the latest revision on the door handle.

The handles on the Macan, the second hand on the clock falling off (which mine just did the other day) and the black pillar problem. The cosmetic stuff that occurs is a shame, I agree, On the other side of the coin I will say, mechanically they are solid cars.

Got cracks on all four of my door handles. The one on the driver's door is a huge fracture.

Called the dealer today, set up an appointment to come in and show them so they can "diagnose" even though they acknowledged "yes it's a problem on that model." Kind of a waste of time to do this step, but I guess that's the process...
