Default Was there ever a passenger grab handle for our cars?

AKA the 'oh shit handle'. That handle that goes somewhere on the A-pillar or over the door for people to grab onto.

Was this a Euro or Japanese-only feature?

I've never seen one. At all. But I always wondered that.

It always felt weird not having one.

the door handle is the OH SHIT handle. I've always wanted the Infini foot rest too...I'm sure that helps.

Well my car was made in japan so it doesn't have one. I haven't seen it as a feature for the efini model either so i guess it doesnt.

i'm talking about the regular door handle on the door panel, seems sturdy enough to hold me.

It's just a plastic threaded insert in the door frame on the other end. I don't think it could hold much load.

no way, mine are held on by actual metal screws...I've held on to that handle for dear life and it's never popped off/come off.
