Door handles

I have an 05 GT. I have been thru 3 door handles so far. Two driver side and one passenger. Currently both need replacing again. They don't return to the flush position and sometimes don't return enough to actually latch. Imagine my surprise as I turn a corner and the door flies open.
Anyone else have these issues? Ford admitted there was issues and supposedly fixed them but I don't see it.

My driver side door handle used to do the same, where it wouldn't fully return to the closed position, but the door never came open while driving

I have had the issue that the handle does not fully return flush. But I haven't had the door fly open on me. My handle has been this way since I got the car I'm just living with it.

They use the same handles o. My wife's Edge and others. They feel more positive. Never had a problem with them. Have a replacement, just have to figure out how to get the old one out.
