Default Nissan Titan- Do you your doors freeze?

My mother owns a 2004 or 2005 Titan I believe. Very often her driver side and sometimes passenger side door handle's freeze resulting in either being locked out. Which in a short temporary fix she has to put a rope to the door handle and through the steering wheel and out through the window where ever she has to go. It is a hassle. Then also sometimes the doors won't close sometimes resulting in a dead battery. Do you have any suggestions? The dealership wants 600-900$ just to LOOK at it. In a grand scheme could it be possible to go after Nissan claiming that it is a safety issue, because think what happens if you put your kid in the truck and run inside to get something and it is the middle of winter and the doors freeze shut, what happens? What if your driving down the road and your doors open while your driving.

call 1 800 NISSAN 1 start a consumers affairs report. Empty out a space in the garage to pull the truck inside to let it thaw and dry out once in a while, might be all it needs. WD-40 is your friend to dry out the truck door latches those outside handles are made of plastic and should not freeze up. Latch has three cables the outside handle cable may have moisture inside it. Pressure washing could have forced water into the latch cables last summer. Try another Dealership Check out charges should not cost that much replacing the entire door latch and painted outside handle may get close to 250 dollars however. Good Luck
