    No, they are not the same. The sedan handles are shorter than the coupe and hatch. I believe you can make the coupe and hatch handles fit the sedan, but not the other way around.

    Compare the part numbers on Majestic Honda's website.

    That should tell you for sure.

    Looks like the outer front door handles of the 2, 3, and 4 doors are the same part number. The lock rods are not the same. Keep in mind that DX trimmed door handles will be black and textured, LX and LX-i handles will have smooth/paintable finishes. Try for the factory painted kind for your car.
