2007 AURA XR
Dizzy Design Flaw? Or Feature?

I had my battery go TOTALLY dead today (A less than year old DieHard Platinum) and discovered some inconveniences in the design of our car when that happens.

1) With only one key lock on the car, the only door you can open when there is no power is the driver's door.

2) You can't open the trunk. With a dead battery, the remote and the button on the driver's door don't work.

I ended up having to climb over the front seats, into the back seat, unlock the back door (because the lock is at the back of the door, instead of the front), get out, then release the fold down seat back and climb into the trunk to retrieve my jumper cables, which I keep behind one of the side nets.

You know, I'm not surprised at this at all after discovering the hard way that you have to remove the whole front bumper to replace a headlight bulb.
