The non M&T versions do have a recess there for the grab handle, but I haven't peeked above the headliner to see if there's anything to mount it to.I can back Joat up on this one. My '03 GT with the M&T package does have the recess on the driver's side, but no handle. I never was behind the headliner yet so I don't know what's back there either. I would think that the threaded holes are probably there from the factory, though, as it would just be easier for NUMMI to make all the cars the same way. I wondered why that recess was there but no handle just the other day, then I remembered the right-hand drive Voltz. For such a relatively small production detail, I figured that all Vibes and Voltz's would have been made the same regarding that recess and the theaded holes.I don't think I'll bother to install the driver's handle in mine. If I'm ever in an oh-**** situation, I'm going to have one hand on the wheel and the other on the shifter so I don't think I'd ever use it. I never use the other handles in there as it is. I don't really even know why manufacturers bother to still put these in cars, it seems like such a waste to me. I think that they're just a leftover feature of cars from days long gone. Sort of like transmission humps on the floor that exist in front wheel drive cars.
