Re: Just Out Of Curiosity....mmmmnnnn
well the car was designed by experts how dare you think of such a simple
I had a Ford Fairlane Na and if someone put down the button on ANY door all
locked .I have seen a passenger at the airport running late for his plane
with his luggage securely locked in the boot after he locked all the doors
from the passenger side .THATS BESIDES KIDS BEING LOOKED IN THE CAR
ACCIDENTLY ON A HOT DAY .So we had to carry a spare under the car but at
least we could open it .
Must have been a Ford technician on loan to Volvo designed the system .My
brother in law a Ford designer went to drive his family a very long distance
in a new van with a badly leaking exhaust at the manifold ,dont think it
would have done his new born much good with carbon monoxide in the car .In
retrospect shes now a lawyer and extremely right wing so I wonder if I
should have intervened .
