Ok the door handle is replaceable they are about $36 at the dealer depending on the color you will need to remove the glove box to make it easier to replace the handle make sure when you go to remove the lock cylinder that you have the key in the cylinder so the tumblers do not fall of it. Here are directions and a picture that shows you how to remove the glove box i hope this helps.
