2006 design flaw?

My 2006 exterior door Handel is jacked up.. Have to manually make sure it returned to its closed position after I open the door or sometimes the door won't close... Anyone else..

My driver side door handle has done it for years.

Another thing is the door fabric/leather starts to detach leaving a bubble. Happened in both of my friend's 05 and 06.

My door handles have the same issue (07 GT300) but I have not yet encountered the bubbling mentioned in the prior post
