Default roof handles suck

well both of mine broke. first my dad tryed to use them to get out my car and it pulled right off then my friend tryed to use the other side and he didnt know they were weak and he pulled the other side off.
i looked at them afterwards and their only a plastic clip that holds them on. my wifes saturn has better handles then my car does. has anyone had this problem?

I just don't have them. After putting three new ones in I still didn't react fast enough to people grabbing them. Or people would grab them at the track on tightturns... Lovely, Now I got some ******* floating over the console with my handle in his hand.... Bah. Handles are for old people anyway.
