Only method of opening vehicle door from outside using a key is through drivers side door or using remote entry system. Consumer complaint is that if driver's door is inoperable, and electrical system is inoperable, there is no way to open vehicle from outside. There should be an option to manually open each of the doors. Eliminating this option was just to save a few dollars on the part of the manufacturee.
